Montgomery County Transit Task Force Public Forum

June 17, 6-10pm
Council Office Building, 3rd Floor Hearing Room (100 Maryland Ave, Rockville

RSVP here.

Montgomery County is considering how to pay for and build the Rapid Transit System - a critical investment for our future - and they're looking for your input.   The planned 81-mile Rapid Transit System is critical to creating sustainable, reliable transportation options for Montgomery County's future. Determining a financing and implementation plan is essential. This spring, the County Executive's Transit Task Force reconvened to answer these questions and more, and will be seeking community input.  Prior to the forum, the Transit Task Force will release questions that the public can respond to in their comments. If you cannot attend the event, you can submit a written statement instead. (C/o Communities for Rapid Transit)
