Route 40 West, also known as the Golden Mile, represents so much worth celebrating about Frederick. This route houses dozens of local shops, restaurants, and other businesses operated by hardworking Frederick residents who bring a global flair to our Frederick community. A drive along the Golden Mile will show you how much these restaurants, businesses, and neighborhoods have to offer you and your family and the community at large. Not only will it take you into the City of Frederick—it’ll take you to so much more.
Dr. Julio Menocal will launch a trial shuttle service Friday with three stops in the neighborhoods along West Patrick Street on Golden Mile. The service will initially be limited to patients of Menocal’s medical practice on Baughman’s Lane, although he hopes to eventually expand it to other riders as well. The route will run Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., on a loop between Aldi, Boscov’s, and the Baughman’s Professional Center, where Menocal’s office is located. Menocal will initially fund the project himself.
