Proposed Ride On Service Changes for FY2011

Montgomery County is faced with a projected budget shortfall for Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 (July 1, 2010 to June 30, 2011) of nearly a billion dollars.  In order to close this gap, the County Executive has submitted to the County Council reductions to 34 of Ride On’s services to save $2.7 million in FY 2011. If approved by the Council, the service changes would begin as early as July 4, 2010.
 
The proposed cuts would eliminate three weekday routes, 10 Saturday routes, and five Sunday routes. Another 16 services would have fewer trips or a branch eliminated. The recommended service reductions were selected because they impact the least number of riders, or are in areas where alternative service is available. A public forum on the recommended changes with a comment period was held in February.
