Public Invited to Ride On Forum about a Proposed Service Expansion in Potomac

The public is invited to a forum to discuss the expansion of Ride On service for Tobytown, a smaller, isolated community in Potomac located south of River Road.

The proposed route will add new stops, as well, in North Potomac and Rockville. The suggested routing encompasses River Road, Travilah Road, Piney Meetinghouse Road, Glen Road, Darnestown Road, Wootton Parkway, Great Falls Road and Middle Lane to the Rockville Metro Station. The route will provide transportation to local schools, Shady Grove Hospital, libraries, shops, eateries and other transportation services. It will operate seven days a week, from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., running every 75 minutes. The regular Ride On fare for this route will be $1.75.

The forum will be held on Thursday, July 28, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. in the All-Purpose Room at Travilah Elementary School, 13801 Dufief Mill Road, North Potomac. As with all of Ride On’s public forums, it will be an interactive opportunity for staff to hear directly from potential customers. All comments and feedback from attendees will be considered before a final decision is made regarding this bus service.  

Comments can also be made in writing by August 11, 2016 to:
