Description

The project will advance the planning, design, and implementation of new premium-transit services to support the Great Seneca Science Corridor and surrounding areas. The project includes new, upgraded transit stations, dedicated bus and bus + bike lanes, transit signal priority, new roadway connections, upgrades to transit centers, as well as pedestrian and bicycle improvements for the first two routes. These transit services will provide frequent and reliable connections between Kentlands, Crown Farm, King Farm, the Universities at Shady Grove, Adventist Shady Grove Hospital, Shady Grove Metro, Rockville, and other key destinations in support of the Great Seneca Science Corridor Master Plan.

Justification

The continued delay of the Corridor Cities Transitway (CCT) has limited the ability for land use plans in the Great Seneca Science Corridor area to be realized. While the CCT is still identified as the long-term transit need for this area, a vision for enhanced transit improvements has been identified for quicker implementation to help the county achieve its non-auto-driver mode share (NADMS goals) .
