Working toward making a comprehensive rapid transit system a reality in the local community, County Executive Ike Leggett has launched a Transit Task Force that will advocate for developing and implementing a system that is consistent with state transportation objectives and complements regional transit operations.
The Task Force is the only organization focused exclusively on making a comprehensive rapid transit system in Montgomery County a reality for its residents and businesses.
The 20-member group’s mission is to advise the County Executive on how to achieve his vision and to be advocates for developing and implementing a world-class, County-wide, rapid transit system that is safe, efficient and effectively moves people throughout the County.
The system will provide improved mobility for its riders, improve the County’s quality of life, stimulate economic development in the County, and improve air quality, and reduce greenhouse gases and energy consumption.
