Members of the public are invited to attend and provide comment on the Public Draft of the Report of the Task Force. The Public Draft is expected to be released to the public on or about September 16 and will be posted on the Transit Task Force website. Earlier this year, the Transit Task Force was reconvened to review the prior legislation and recommend how best to organize and finance implementation of a high-performance bus rapid transit system. The system is contained in the Countywide Transit Corridors Functional Master Plan, which was approved by the County Council in late 2013. Members of the public wishing to speak at the forum must sign up between Wednesday, September 16 at 9 a.m. and Wednesday, September 30 at 10 a.m. To register to speak, call 240-777-7165, Monday through Friday, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.; TTY users call Maryland Relay.

A maximum of 50 people will be able to present their views during the public forum. Speakers will have three minutes to make their comments and are encouraged to submit written remarks – which may include additional information and materials. If 50 people sign up before September 30, no additional names will be accepted and there will not be a waiting list. Those who are unable to testify can submit written comments to the “Contact Us” portion of the Task Force web page between Wednesday, September 16 and Tuesday, October 6, 2015. “After listening closely to the public’s concerns and a considerable amount of study, we believe we have found a way forward for this vital initiative,” said Mark Winston, chair of the Transit Task Force.
