Decorated ‘Flash’ Buses Are Still on the Move in the County

Montgomery County Department of Transportation’s Bus Rapid Transit buses, known as Flash, are all decked out for the holidays. Residents will see them throughout December running along Colesville Road and Columbia Pike (US 29) on the route from the Silver Spring Transit Center to Briggs Chaney and Burtonsville, with stops along the way. 

The buses run every 15 minutes all day seven days a week—more frequently during rush hour. In addition to great service, the decorated buses are offering a spectacular view for residents. Three buses have been decorated for the holidays and can be seen in the corridor each evening. Details on routes here. Just like all Ride On buses, the Flash is $1 to ride. Rides are free for seniors, members of the disability community with a senior or reduced fare SmartTrip Card, and children with a Youth Cruiser card (obtained through the school or at County libraries).

Flash is a fast bus service that is currently planned for four additional corridors in Montgomery County. The projects will transform mobility options by offering high-frequency bus services along predetermined corridors. The projects also will bring bicycle and pedestrian improvements along the corridors to make it easier to get to Flash stations. Where possible, Flash buses will run in dedicated lanes to bypass existing traffic congestion.
