Recommended Phasing

Phase I

Enhanced limited stop bus service along the Randolph Road Corridor between White Flint and White Oak/FDA with peak period service at 10-minute headways.

Phase II

Enhanced limited stop bus service along the Randolph Road Corridor between Montgomery Mall and White Oak/FDA with 10-minute headways. Service between Montgomery Mall and New Hampshire Avenue would operate with a 10-minute frequency, while service to White Oak/FDA would be have a 10-minute effective headway with 20-minute headway along New Hampshire and Randolph/US 29.

Phase III

As ridership increases and demand warrants, headways will be increased to accommodate the level of demand. According to the ridership projections in the CTCFMP, peak demand in the future would warrant six minute headways in the peak period and eight minute headways in the mid-day.
