By Matt McCleskey

As Montgomery County looks to close a $600 budget gap, 20 Ride On bus routes could be trimmed or eliminated entirely. The savings from the proposed cuts are estimated to be only about $1.2 million.

The county says the routes being targeted are those with the fewest riders or those where alternative bus service is available nearby.

A public forum on the proposed changes is scheduled for February 1 at the County Executive Office Building in Rockville. Those wishing to speak at the forum need to sign up by January 25. Click here to sign up.
