Go Montgomery Transportation Updates


Montrose Parkway East — back to top
Last week, the next step in building Montrose Parkway East was taken when residents and property owners had an opportunity to discuss plans for the new road with engineers from the County’s Department of Public Works and Transportation. Montrose Parkway East will connect Parklawn Drive with Viers Mill Road, providing additional east-west travel options, and eventually connecting with Montrose Parkway West, which will extend all the way to I-270.


Ride On Schedules Available for Personal Electronic Devices — back to top
Using transit just became even easier. Ride On bus schedules are now available for downloading onto Palm Pilots or Pocket PCs. Hundreds of people have already obtained the special software that allows them to conveniently access schedule information while on the run. For more information, visit www.secondkiss.com/rideon.


Potholes — back to top
It’s that time of year again when freezing and thawing weather combined with rain and snow create the ideal conditions to foster a whole new season of potholes. Now you can help keep our road network in tip-top shape by reporting any potholes you see. Just go to the County’s website at www.montgomerycountymd.gov/dpwt, and click on ‘Pothole Repair.’ While on the Department of Public Works and Transportation’s website, you can also get information about the roads and streets scheduled for resurfacing this year, as well as which sidewalks, curbs and gutters will be repaired or replaced.


Taxi Reform Legislation — back to top
Montgomery County Executive Douglas M. Duncan has proposed a dramatic overhaul of the way the County regulates taxicabs, submitting legislation that will improve customer service by setting performance goals and standards for cab companies and drivers, as well as increase competition by making more taxicab licenses available. The new legislation will reward good performance and allow the County to penalize poor performers. To view the legislation, go to www.montgomerycountymd.gov/dpwt and click on ‘Proposed Taxicab Reform.’


Cable Television Go Montgomery Updates — back to top
Catch weekly Go Montgomery updates on our own County Cable Montgomery - Channel 6. During morning and afternoon rush hour traffic cameras, the Department of Public Works and Transportation’s own Community Outreach Manager Tom Pogue will bring you the latest on the County’s transportation projects and opportunities for citizen input.
