Among the rides, food and farm animals at this year’s Montgomery County Agricultural Fair will be a group of bus rapid transit boosters offering a look at what a future county rapid transit vehicle might look like.
Members will give out information to fair-goers about the latest details of the system — which could include a bus rapid transit corridor along Rockville Pike/Wisconsin Avenue and Old Georgetown Road.
David Hauck, the group’s executive director, told a group of supporters at an event in White Flint this week that County Executive Isiah Leggett is expected to show up at the display on Aug. 12 for a press conference. He encouraged as many BRT supporters as possible to show up.
A BRT system is also planned for the Corridor Cities Transitway, meant to connect residents of Gaithersburg, Clarksburg and nearby places with the Shady Grove Metro station.
