Beyond:
BRT Corridor Advisory Committees

 
As Montgomery County's Department of Transportation (MCDOT) and the Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) work toward implementing our Rapid Transit Network, they'd like the input from community stakeholders on how the system will look, run and feel.  Residents, businesses and other members of the community are invited to apply for a BRT Corridor Advisory Committee.  This small investment of your time will pay dividends for the future of our county.  It's crucial that engaged and interested Friends apply - please read more by clicking here!  The application deadline is November 21st.  

As always, you may email any questions/comments to info@whiteflint.org!
