Project Outcomes

Final Report


Montgomery County, Maryland has an extensive public transit system. This system is underutilized, leading to increased traffic congestion, particularly in the Bethesda area. The goal of this project was to assist Montgomery County in the development of an employer-based pass program, with the hopes of increasing transit ridership. After background research and data collection, we designed a plan for implementing and piloting such a program. The results of this project will contribute to the creation of an employer-based pass program.
