Montgomery County’s lengthy anticipated Bus Fast Transit (BRT) system is now visibly beneath building. This photograph reveals the Briggs Chaney Park and Journey station, the place officers broke floor for the Route 29 BRT line in October 2018.

The Route 29 line will improve current buses with a brand new model (the Flash), extra frequent buses, transit sign precedence, and higher stations with off-board fare cost and degree boarding. It would not embody a devoted busway, apart from highway-shoulder bus lanes that exist already at the moment. If all goes in keeping with plan, passengers will begin using in early 2020.

To this point, probably the most seen building is on the Briggs Chaney Park and Journey, the northernmost station for the orange route proven on this map:
