|Ride On to Hold Public Forum on Proposed Changes to Routes 83 and 94|
Montgomery County will hold a public forum on proposed changes to Ride On bus routes 83 and 94 on Thursday, September 26 at the Upcounty Regional Services Center, 12900 Middlebrook Road, Germantown. The forum will begin at 6:30 p.m. and end after the last speaker presents remarks. In case of inclement weather, the public forum will be held on October 3.
• Route 83 - Extend service to the future Holy Cross Hospital site in Germantown by extending the route along Observation Drive through Montgomery College/Germantown to the Hospital. The existing Route 83 operates between the Germantown Transit Center and the Milestone Park & Ride Lot via Dorsey Mill Road, with some service to the Germantown MARC Station.
• Route 94 – A new route for this bus line called “Meet the MARC” is proposed to address greater demand for transit service in the Upcounty area, connect MARC commuter train service to Rockville, Silver Spring and Washington, D.C. and serve residents of the Clarksburg community. The new Route 94 will originate in the morning in Clarksburg and operate via Clarksburg Road, Snowden Farm Parkway, Little Seneca Parkway, Meadow Mist Road, Skylark Road, Ridge Road, Father Hurley Boulevard., Dawson Farm Road and Liberty Mill Road and end at the lower level of the Germantown MARC Station. The last day of service for the existing Route 94 will be Friday, October 18.
Sign language interpreter services will be provided only upon request with notice as far in advance as possible, but not less than three business days prior to the date of the forum. Large print format is available upon request. All public comments, including alternative suggestions, will be considered before any bus route changes are finalized.
Comments on the proposed service additions may also be made in writing, by fax or e-mailed to the Division of Transit Services by October 3. Send comments to:
