Below you’ll find ten of the informational boards from last night’s MTA/SHA/Montgomery County BRT Open House at BCC High School. (There is one more open house on Tuesday, May 3 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM at Gaithersburg High School. ) At the Open House, a wide variety of state and county rapid transit experts were available to answer questions and gather public opinions. You can see all of the information provided and learn more about this BRT process at http://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/RTS/md355openhouses.html.
Here are two quick interesting Rapid Transit facts from last night’s presentations. Non-work trips account for 88% of overall existing travel along Route 355. Projected increases by 2040 along Route 355: population up 33%, employment up 31%, traffic up by 20%, peak period travel time increases by 30%
Look at the final image to find out how you can tell the BRT planners what you think about BRT along Route 355.
