Ike Leggett Asking for Montgomery County Bus System Research Funds

1 min read

Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett is requesting $1 million from the county council for research in a proposed bus rapid transit system, WTOP reports.

Legett said the funds would be used for locating three routes and asked the task force to assess the proposed routes, ridership, and project timeline.

The Washington Examiner reported that the planned bus system would potential cost $1.8 billion, but some county officials claim that it would cost over $10 billion.

A county executive has already deemed the project financially unfeasible and the other recommended reducing the project’s scale.
