The Montgomery County Council will hold a public hearing on the County Executive ’s proposal to raise the cost of the Ride On monthly pass to $45. The hearing will be held on Tuesday, April 26, starting at 7:30 p.m. The hearing will be held in the 3rd Floor Hearing Room of the Council Office Building , 100 Maryland Avenue , Rockville .
Currently, Ride On has a $30 monthly pass for unlimited rides on regular Ride On routes. The County Executive proposes an increase of $15 a month that will raise the cost to $45, beginning with the July 2011 Ride On Monthly Pass. Customers will still receive a substantial savings from the use of this pass. This increase is one of many actions proposed to help offset the County’s nearly $300 million budget shortfall for fiscal year 2012.
Individuals and representatives of organizations who would like to speak at the public hearing should register by calling 240-777-7803 on or before April 25 by 4 p.m. Sign language interpreter services will be provided only upon request with notice as far in advance as possible but not less than 72 hours prior to the date of the hearing. Large print format is also available upon request.
Comments on the proposed Ride On fare changes may also be written, faxed or e-mailed to the Montgomery County Council by noon on Wednesday, April 27.
