The Walk & Ride Challenge 

Walking and transit is an ideal combination. You might not live close enough to your job to walk to work. So, ride Metrorail and walk from the Metro station to your workplace or use Ride On or Metrobus. Walking is free and thanks to the Maryland Commuter Tax Credit program, there are big savings to companies that offer transit benefits to their employees!

Combining walking and transit is very eco-friendly too! You can "Go Green on Metro," because Metro is adopting hybrid buses, CNG and clean diesel technologies. In addition, Montgomery County Ride On has been replacing its diesel buses with clean-burning fuels.

Never used transit? It's easy! Just contact Montgomery County Commuter Services at mcdot.commuterservices@montgomerycountymd.gov or 240-773-2989 or go to www.montgomerycountymd.gov/commute for more information.

Walk Smart, Walk Safe

  • Be Alert Pay attention. Look, listen and watch all traffic and pedestrian signals.
  • Be Smart Always use sidewalks and crosswalks. Make eye contact with drivers to make sure they see you before stepping off the curb.
  • Be Safe Never insist on the right of way. Be conspicuous, be courteous, and be careful.
  • Please visit  Montgomery County’s Pedestrian Safety web page for more information
