Silver Spring Transit Center: When Will It Open?
Guess when the Transit Center will open for regular bus service and you could win dinner for two at 8407 Kitchen Bar. The most accurate guess wins, when the center opens.
ACT volunteers will pass out entry forms in front of the Transit Center from 6:30 to 9:30 am on Thursday, Sept. 26, the date of the anniversary. The entry form and complete contest rules are also on ACT’s website, www.actfortransit.org.
According to an ACT news release, the event five years ago was actually the third groundbreaking for the transit center. The first ceremony was held 13 years ago in September of 2000. At that time, then-County Executive Doug Duncan announced that the transit center would be finished by 2003.
ACT president Tina Slater welcomed contest participants into the advocacy group. “Your support will help us push to get the transit center finished, build the Purple Line, and upgrade transit throughout the county,” she said. “But I have to give you one warning. We make absolutely no promises about when the prize will be awarded.”
