On December 1, the Montgomery County Council will hold a public meeting about a proposal to raise the cost of Ride On’s monthly pass by $5, from $25 to $30, beginning January 1, 2010. The monthly pass provides unlimited rides. Even with the proposed increase, regular Ride On customers will still receive a substantial savings compared to paying the regular daily fare. The increase is one of many actions proposed by the County Executive to help offset the County’s nearly $370 million budget shortfall for fiscal year 2010.
The meeting will start at 1:30 p.m.* in the 3rd Floor Hearing Room of the Council Office Building, 100 Maryland Avenue, Rockville. Comments on the proposed Ride On fare change may be sent to the Montgomery County Council by the close of business on November 30 at:
