The corridors under study for future implementation are:

  • US 29 between Burtonsville and downtown Silver Spring: Study funded by the State of Maryland and Montgomery County. Montgomery County, Howard County, and the State of Maryland are also working closely to provide BRT service through US 29 to Columbia in Howard County.
  • MD 355 between Clarksburg and Bethesda: Study funded by the State of Maryland and Montgomery County.
  • MD 586 (Veirs Mill Road) between Rockville and Wheaton: Study funded by Montgomery County.
  • The Corridor Cities Transitway (CCT) from Metropolitan Grove MARC station to the Shady Grove Metrorail station (Phase 1): Study Funded by the State of Maryland.

Additional corridors are planned for other parts of the county, as noted in the Countywide Transit Corridors Functional Master Plan.

Planned Routes

The County has established Corridor Advisory Committees (CAC) for each of the three corridors under study. The aim of each CAC is to provide community stakeholders with opportunities to participate in the BRT system planning process. Each CAC meets regularly with the Montgomery County Department of Transportation and the State to discuss the following:

  • General BRT concept designs
  • BRT study assumptions
  • Transit access and operations
  • Coordination with other modes
  • Public involvement planning
  • Community needs

RELIABLE Frequent service, dedicated lanes, and green light priority signaling keep BRT vehicles moving.

EFFICIENT One BRT vehicle can take up to 90 cars off the road, making our transportation network more efficient and your commute easier.

CLEAN BRT reduces harmful greenhouse gas emissions, making our air cleaner.

COMFORTABLE New BRT stations will feature real-time travel info and provide a place for you to wait comfortably and pay your fare before boarding.

COST-EFFECTIVE You can save money by riding BRT instead of driving a car.
