Dockless E-Bikes & Pilot Program Expansion

After soliciting public input at three MCDOT-sponsored Town Hall meetings, Montgomery County is continuing the pilot program of dockless bikes in Silver Spring and Takoma Park and expanding the pilot area to include North Bethesda. The pilot will consist primarily of pedal-assist e-bikes.  Lime-E bikes will be available beginning early December 2018.  Additional areas and vendors may be added in the future. More information about the Pilot Program Expansion can be found here.
MCDOT engaged Toole Design to evaluate the bikeshare pilot program in Silver Spring and Takoma Park and to develop recommendations for future phases. To learn more, visit the Executive Summary of the MCDOT Dockless Bikeshare Evaluation report.
A survey has been conducted and continues to be open to permit feedback on the dockless vehicle program. This 5-minute survey is available HERE.

MCDOT now has a Mobile Commuter Store which sells fare media, including adding value or purchasing SmarTrip cards, MARC tickets and Ride On passes.

Thinking about Starting a Telework Program?

Telework During SafeTrack:
Quick-Start Programs for Business Continuity

Teleworking offers one of the most effective ways to respond to the unique challenges presented by SafeTrack, the year-long effort to improve the safety and reliability of the Metrorail transit system. Disruption will be systemic for an extended period of time. Telework can provide your organization a way to address employee and management concerns, maintain or even improve productivity, and provide effective solutions for mobility during SafeTrack. 

Given the urgency of finding commuting solutions during SafeTrack, this webinar will provide the necessary details for getting started quickly with a telework program. Our webinar instructor, Elham Shirazi, has over 30 years of experience in developing telework programs for the private, public and non-profit sectors. Learn key implementation steps such as developing a policy and basic procedures, selecting the right employees and jobs, and adapting your organizational culture for employees working remotely anywhere from one day a week to full time during SafeTrack. Representatives from local organizations also present summaries of their telework programs. And free expert consulting will be available to help you get started at your organization!
