Projects programmed for FY22 include: Veirs Mill Road, near the Wheaton Metrorail Station; Century Boulevard, Crystal Rock Drive and Aircraft Road near the Germantown Transit Center; and US 29 in Silver Spring. FY23 projects will be coordinated with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority's Bus Priority Program, which will provide design for bus reliability improvements for up to two corridors in Montgomery County, with the intention that the improvements would be implemented by the County.

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 ten 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.
