Preliminary BRT Report Shows Promise, Ridership Overstated
May 25, 2011 |
The preliminary report on Montgomery County’s proposed Bus-Rapid-Transit (BRT) study is posted on-line, but in a recent email from the County, it was disclosed that due to a traffic model coding error, some of the results will need to be recalculated.
The net effect was that ridership figures across much of the system were overstated. County officials noted that the cost figures would likely be revised downward as well, as fewer BRT vehicles would be needed once the lower ridership numbers were adopted.
