Washington Post, Nov. 4, 2018:
Pete Tomao, an advocate with the Coalition for Smarter Growth, said the Montgomery BRT line will not only bring badly needed transit enhancements to the corridor, but will serve as a model for the region.
“The best way to attract new riders is to build a system that is frequent and reliable and gets people to where they need to be quickly,” Tomao said.
“It’s not just off-board fare collection. It’s not just dedicated lanes. It’s not just transit signal priority. It’s not just more frequent service,” he said. “It’s all of those things.”
