Public Forum on Ride On’s Expansion to be Held on Nov. 29

Ride On is expanding its services along US 29 (Columbia Pike) and officials are inviting the public for input on Nov. 29.

The expansion is a new limited stop service called Route 129. The new service will run from Silver Spring Transit Center to Burtonsville Park and Ride Lot with just 14 stops.  Route 129 is expected to provide a faster option for commuters during rush hours. Buses will run every 15 minutes from 5:30 to 9 a.m. and 3 to 7 p.m., according to a news release.

During the public forum, residents will have the opportunity to learn more details about the route and fares.

The event will take place in the Large Conference Room at the East County Regional Service Center located at 3300 Briggs Chaney Road in Silver Spring and begins at 6:30 p.m.

The forum will end after the last registered speaker. Individuals or groups who want to speak should provide in writing their name, telephone number, email address and organization to the Division of Transit Services, Ride On Public Forum, 101 Monroe Street, 5th Floor, Rockville, MD 20850.  Residents can also send an email.

Requests must be submitted three days before the forum. Speaks must bring two printed copies of their testimony for the record.

If the forum is cancelled due to inclement weather, a public forum will be rescheduled for Nov. 30.
