Bethesda to Glenmont Ride On Route 33 service change proposed

A bus route connecting three of my favorite places in Montgomery County (Bethesda, Glenmont and Connecticut Avenue Estates) could be in for some changes. Montgomery County's Department of Transportation is proposing to make service changes to Ride On Route 33 (Bethesda Medical Center Metro station to Glenmont Metro station).

The change would divert the bus into the Connecticut Avenue Estates neighborhood near the Glenmont end of the route, to provide better service to that community. Here is a rare case where a bus route change would actually provide more service, rather than less.
Existing route near
Connecticut Avenue Estates
Proposed diversion into
Connecticut Avenue Estates
To comment on the proposed change, you can speak at one of 3 public forums:

Thursday, March 2, 2017 at 7 p.m. (Connecticut Avenue Estates Community)

Why are those 3 some of your favorite places?

Some of mine might be
Brookside Gardens
White's Ferry
Cabin John Park
Glen Echo

Anyone else?

That's where Dyer's hookers live.

Glenmont is a gem. I think it used to be one of best kept secrets in the county for affordable neighborhoods near Metro.
If you want an affordable single family home near Metro, Glenmont has to be on your list.
