Ride On Grant Application Available Online

Recently, the Montgomery County Department of Transportation submitted a TIGER Grant application to the U.S. Department of Transportation requesting funding for a MD 355 Ride On Plus Transit Improvements Project (ROP). If funded, the project would establish an 11-mile, premium, limited-stop bus service to improve transit travel time and increase transit frequencies between the Lakeforest Transit Center in Gaithersburg and the Grosvenor Metrorail station. Funding for the ROP project would enable the purchase of 14 zero emission electric buses; related infrastructure improvements including bus stop improvements; electric charging stations; accessible pedestrian improvements; real time travel passenger information; adaptive transit signal priority improvements; and Bikeshare stations.
