Justification

Montgomery County is working towards implementation of a 102-mile bus rapid transit (BRT) network that will dramatically improve transit and support the county's economic development, equity, and environmental goals. This network is focused on 10 primary corridors within Montgomery County and is an ambitious plan to improve bus transit service and refocus how people travel in Montgomery County. Individual corridor projects are complex, costly, and take several years to implement. Recognizing the importance of improving bus performance in the shorter term, the Montgomery County Department of Transportation is advancing the Bus Priority Program to provide targeted and quickly implementable improvements that will result in improved bus reliability and travel time.
