Project Description

Participate in Open House

The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) is advancing BRT for the New Hampshire Avenue corridor consistent with the 2013 Countywide Transit Corridors Functional Master Plan. BRT will provide high quality transit service that improves the speed and reliability of bus service in the corridor.

The New Hampshire Avenue BRT Study will engage the public and:

  • Identify locations experiencing bus delay
  • Define route end points
  • Future station locations
  • Evaluate potential improvements to bus service
  • Improve station accessibility
  • Connect with existing transit

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]
