Residents will have the opportunity to learn about the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line in three upcoming open houses hosted by the Montgomery County Department of Transportation.

The BRT is a new transit option for commuters along a 13.5  mile stretch on U.S. Route 29 between the Silver Spring Transit Center and Burtonsville.

The new line is expected to begin service in 2020 and will be the first of its kind in Maryland, according to a news release.

The open houses are scheduled for the following dates:
