Shopping and appointments

Collington provides certain scheduled local transportation without charge. Transportation for special, personal, or group trips can be arranged for a fee. Regularly scheduled trips go to the New Carrollton Metro/Amtrak/MARC station, Kettering Plaza (Giant), Watkins Park Shopping Center (Post Office, county library branch), Woodmore (Wegmans, Costco, Best Buy, JC Penney’s, liquor store, and others) and Largo (near the Post Office).

All regularly scheduled transportation leaves from the Security desk unless otherwise stated. Passengers returning from grocery trips may ask to be dropped off near the cottage and/or apartment.

See the weekly Courier for up to date times.

Residents should make reservations for shuttle service, free or for a fee, by calling Security at x2020, or 301-925-7707. Security needs to know the size vehicle that will be required and whether wheelchair access is needed.
