Two Ride On Public Forums in February Give Residents an Opportunity to Comment on Proposed Service Reductions and Rate Increases

Montgomery County is faced with a projected budget shortfall of $608 million for fiscal year 2011. To help close the gap, the County is proposing to reduce or eliminate Ride On routes that have the fewest riders or those where other alternative service is available, and raise fares by up to 20 cents. 
Residents who wish to comment on Ride On’s proposed service reductions can attend a public forum on Monday, February 1, starting at 6:30 p.m., at the Executive Office Building Cafeteria, Terrace Level, located at 101 Monroe Street, Rockville. In case of inclement weather, the public forum will be held on Tuesday, February 2 at the same location.
The Montgomery County Council will hold a public hearing on the proposed Ride On fare increases on February 4at 7:30 p.m. in the 3rd Floor Hearing Room of the Council Office Building, 100 Maryland Avenue, Rockville.
For information on the specific proposed route changes or rate increases, giving testimony at the forums, or submitting written comments, go to the Ride On website.
