Montgomery County And Transit
In October 2006, I did a presentation to members of Action Coalition for Transit, Montgomery County's transit advocacy group--the group that really kept the Purple Line idea alive in the face of active opposition by the road lobby and developer groups. I suppose only 20-25 people saw the presentation. Afterwards, I went home and modified the presentation based on the comments and reactions. I was going to show it to a group of Transportation Demand Management professionals, but it ended up not happening. Today's Post has an article about ideas for bus rapid transit in MoCo. See "Md. Busway Promoted As Solution To Gridlock." Some of that was presaged in this presentation, which more people than 25 ought to see... and clearly, Montgomery County really needs to develop an expansive transportation plan, as this presentation discusses.
