Project Description

The North Bethesda Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridor was identified in the 2013 Countywide Transit Corridors Functional Master Plan.

The 1992 North Bethesda/Garrett Park Master Plan first recommended the creation of a high capacity and high-quality transit connection from the Westfield Montgomery Mall Transit Center through the Rock Spring office park to the Metrorail Red Line. At its eastern end, the BRT would terminate at the either the Grosvenor or White Flint Metrorail Station. At its western end, it would terminate at the transit center at Montgomery Mall.

This planning study will refine the Master Plan recommendation and determine station locations, BRT configuration and corridor termini.

About Corridor Advisory Committees (CAC)

Corridor Advisory Committees follow Master Plan guidance as approved by the Montgomery County Council: “A vital facet of facility planning is to receive input and feedback from affected property owners, civic and business groups, and transit riders and road users, including public forums and workshops, electronic newsletters, and other forms of outreach… Accordingly, a citizens' advisory group comprised of residents, business owners and other relevant stakeholders must be created for each corridor which enters into facility planning to make recommendations to the County on the design, construction and proposed station locations for the transit corridor [emphasis added].”
