Bus Service Adds
Vehicle for Disabled
The Corridor Transportation Corp. of Laurel recently added a 22-passenger bus that will be used to provide curb-to-curb service to those with disabilities. The organization, a nonprofit affiliated with the Baltimore/Washington Corridor Chamber of Commerce, already has a fleet of 22 vehicles.
Service will be provided in the city of Laurel and parts of Prince George's, Anne Arundel and Howard counties.
The program is funded by the Maryland Transit Administration and local governments. For more information, call 800-270-9553.
Collington Trade Center, made up of two buildings in Upper Marlboro, was named "Best New Industrial/Flex Building" by the Maryland/D.C. Chapter of the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties.
Combined, the buildings contain 200,000 square feet of flexible-use, warehouse and office space. Target Corp. recently leased 21,000 square feet of storage and distribution space in the first building. The second building was completed last month.
The project is a joint venture of Rockville-based Gingery Development Group and the Tower Cos. of North Bethesda.
