Need a Ride?

I meant to post this a couple weeks ago.... I was at a meeting with Phil Anrdews, Montgomery County Councilmember (D-Dist 3), a month or so ago when he mentioned a proposal that would allow seniors and the disabled to ride the county's bus system free-of-charge during off-peak hours.

It's really a win-win, rush hour buses are typically quite full (standing room only many times) but the same buses run mostly empty midday. The offer of a free ride may persuade eligible riders to travel during the less congested times, and may even get a few cars off the road.

Nice! Props to Mr. Andrews for this common sense proposal.
