MD 355 Open House – June 26 and 27

FLASH service on MD 355 will run between Bethesda and Clarksburg.


The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) is studying options for a new BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) service along MD 355 called FLASH. MCDOT recently held Open Houses for the public to learn more about FLASH on MD 355 and see the results of the extensive evaluation and preliminary engineering of the alternatives, including ridership, benefits, impacts, and estimated costs.
