Berliner, Carrier Detail Support For Montgomery’s Bus Rapid Transit Plans
December 20, 2013 – County Councilmember Roger Berliner and Planning Board Chair Francoise Carrier recently penned an Op-Ed in The Washington Post detailing their support for Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) in Montgomery County (“Why Montgomery County is getting on board the bus-rapid-transit bandwagon,” December 13, 2013).
In it, they explain that a “robust network of BRT corridors” will be the linchpin of Montgomery’s transportation future — particularly for Route 355, one of the county’s most critical corridors. Overall, the system upon which Montgomery County has embarked envisions 80 miles of dedicated bus lanes — the largest network of dedicated lanes anywhere in the country.
