Bus Rapid Transit Hearings to be Held Across Montgomery County This Week
Whether to reserve existing lanes for buses is among the issue for planners.
On Monday, Patch gave you a chance to “Speak Out” on bus rapid transit in Montgomery County.
Now, planners from the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission want to hear from you.
Planners will present their preliminary plans for a BRT system on the county’s main roads and hear public input on the plan at three meetings around the county beginning Tuesday evening.
One of the topics: Should existing travel lanes be used or are new lanes needed for the network of high-speed buses?
Exhibits will be on display between 6:30 and 9 p.m., with a formal presentation at 7 p.m. each night as follows:
- Today, at Montgomery Blair High School, 51 University Blvd. East, in Silver Spring.
- Wednesday, at the Shady Grove Training Facility, 16641 Crabbs Branch Way, in Rockville.
- Thursday, at Wheaton Regional Library, 11701 Georgia Ave.
