County to Test Displaying Ads in Four Parking Garages

The Montgomery County Department of Transportation’s Division of Parking Management (DPM) will begin a six-month pilot project to test ad-based marketing opportunities in County parking garages. Ads should be posted in the garages by early June. The test will help DPM evaluate business demand for the ads, revenue potential for the County, the types and sizes of displays that are attractive to businesses and ways to ensure that garage signage remains clear and visible.

The four test garages are:
  • Garage 61, 801 Ellsworth Drive, Silver Spring; 
  • Garage 7, 8530 Cameron Street, Silver Spring; 
  • Garage 57, 4841 Bethesda Avenue, Bethesda; and 
  • Garage 11, 7730 Woodmont Avenue, Bethesda. 
Montgomery County operates public parking lots, garages and on-street parking meters with about 12,000 parking spaces in four areas of the County: Silver Spring, Bethesda, Wheaton and Montgomery Hills.

More information about parking in Montgomery County is available on DPM’s website. Advertising inquires should be directed to RMR Outdoor, 855-201-7887.
