The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) invites the public to provide comments on a bikesharing initiative proposed for an area stretching from the District of Columbia line to the Beltway along both Montgomery County portions of the Metrorail Red Line, including Takoma Park, Silver Spring, Forest Glen and Wheaton on the eastern metrorail leg, and Friendship Heights, Bethesda and Medical Center along the western portion. Staff is seeking input on bikesharing locations as part of a grant application to the Maryland Department of Transportation for a bikesharing system.
The open house will be held on Tuesday, November 29 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. in the lobby auditorium of the Executive Office Building, 101 Monroe Street, Rockville. The building is a short walk from the Rockville station on the Metrorail red line.
This grant is part of a larger MCDOT initiative to institute bikesharing throughout Montgomery County to increase options for non-automobile travel.
