MCDOT Participates in American Public Transit Association Workshop

On July 30, several MCDOT employees spoke at the American Public Transit Association (APTA) Multimodal Operations Planning Workshop in Baltimore.  The conference promotes and advances the work of the country’s transportation planners and schedulers by allowing them to meet and share their work.

One session was devoted to Montgomery County.  MCDOT staff discussed what they are doing to improve the County’s public transportation system and the role that public transportation plays in land use development and commuter services.

A brief description of the conference is available on APTA’s website.
