Montgomery County would gain faster bus service under budget proposal

January 17, 2024

Montgomery County bus commuters would get 28 miles of new, faster lines under a $580 million expansion of the county’s bus rapid transit (BRT) system proposed Tuesday by County Executive Marc Elrich (D). The proposal — part of a larger $5.84 billion six-year capital improvement program that the executive is required to submit to the Montgomery County Council every two years — would represent a tripling of the expedited bus service that the county rolled out on U.S. Route 29 in 2020.
