Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) will be an active participant in this year’s GreenFest, which will be held outside of the Takoma Park Community Center on Saturday, April 30 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. We hope to see you there! Visit MCDOT’s exhibit to learn more about what we do and pick up some great giveaways. There’ll be a fun activity for kids.

Here’s some ways to find out more about what MCDOT is doing to enhance the environment and promote sustainability:
  • Come hear MCDOT Director Al Roshdieh, who will be a featured speaker at a talk about sustainable transportation sponsored by four local community green groups – Poolesville Green, Green Wheaton, Bethesda Green and Silver Spring Green. The panel will be held in the Takoma Park Community Center from 3 to 4 p.m. Other speakers include Casey Anderson, Montgomery County Planning Board chair; Jessica Zdeb, Toole Design Group; and Pete Tomao, Coalition for Smarter Growth.
  • Look for one of Ride On’s hybrid electric buses at the electric car show. Never been on a bus? Take a tour and learn more about Ride On service near you.
  • Attend the annual Landscape Beautification and Photography contests awards ceremony at 1:30 p.m. in the Piney Branch Elementary School. Find out what people have been doing to beautify our County and see if you might qualify next year.
