Ride On Service Cuts

Posted in: Woodside Forest Citizens

If anyone reads this page, I would first like to know if there is a more widely used WFCA area website. Also, MoCo DOT is proposing to eliminate Route 3 Ride On service (the only route that serves WFCA, running on Dale Drive between Takoma Park and Silver Spring metros). As it is, they only run in th early morning and in the evening rush-- a total of 3 morning trips and 4 rush hour trips. The reason no one uses the service, I believe, is that it runs so infrequently that it isn't a realistic transit option. Rather than eliminate the service, I would encourage that it be expanded to run throughout the day, so that people could depend upon it as a transit option for shopping, commuting, etc. If it must be eliminated, I would encourage a new line running the length of Dale from Wayne to Georgia Avenue, or a re-routing of an existing line (perhaps expanding the service footprint of the free "Van Go" bus.


Please contact Montgomery County about this if you wish to save local bus service.
