PROJECT TRIP: A DESIGN FOR COUNTY-WIDE TRANSIT

The Montgomery County Council has approved funding for a plan devised by the County's Department of Transportation that will ultimately provide some sort of public transit in nearly every section of the county. What the transportation planners devised was a set of coordinated, short-range transit projects designed to improve feeder and intra-county movement, with service tailored to the varying character of the community. Two scheduled minibus systems operated by DOT in the urban lower county will link residential sections with commercial centers, educational and recreational facilities, inter-city and local Metrobus terminals and future Metrorail stations. These consist of various systems incorporating minibuses, dial-a bus, additional bus routes, commuter rail renovations, peak hour bus additions, shelters, bicycle racks and development of fringe parking spaces. /GMRL/
