Description

This project will design and construct a new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line on MD355 between Clarkburg and Bethesda. Planning conducted by the Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Transit Administration (MDOT MTA) resulted in several Alternatives Retained for Detailed Study in 2017. In 2019, MCDOT completed the planning phase. The project includes dedicated BRT lanes, new BRT stations with level boarding and off-board payment, Transit Signal Priority, purchase of new 60-foot articulated vehicles, and other associated pedestrian and bicycle improvements along the corridor.
