Afternoon Poll: What Would It Take For You To Ride BRT?


A Master Plan that would set up a Bus Rapid Transit system in Montgomery County is a few significant steps away from completion. The actual installation of the system will likely take a lot longer. But there has already been a wealth of controversy about the idea of repurposing lanes (including on Rockville Pike/Wisconsin Avenue) exclusively for buses. So we ask you: Would you use a Bus Rapid Transit system? What factors would lead you to use a Bus Rapid Transit system? Or do you plan to stick to a personal vehicle, Metro or existing bus services? We've included a map of BRT stops along MD 355 as proposed in the Draft of the Countywide Transit Corridors Functional Master Plan. To view information on all 10 transitways, including one that would extend from the Grosvenor-Strathmore Metro station west to Montgomery Mall, view the plan. The 14 proposed BRT stations on the South MD 355 corridor include MD 355 and Hubbard Drive (Montrose Crossing Shopping Center), the White Flint Metro station, MD 355 and Security Lane (White Flint Mall), the Grosvenor-Strathmore Metro station, MD 355 and Pooks Hill Road, MD 355 and Cedar Lane, the Medical Center Metro station, MD 355 and Cordell Avenue, the Bethesda Metro station, Bradley Boulevard and MD 355 and the Friendship Heights Metro station.
