About us

Communities for Transit ("CFT") is a newly formed non-profit organization dedicated to building support for a planned rapid transit network in Montgomery County, Maryland. CFT employs a range of strategies to catalyze support for making Montgomery County a national leader in using transit systems to transform "urbanizing" suburbs from congested, auto-centric neighborhoods into more environmentally and financially sustainable communities.

Rapid Transit Systems (RTS), also known as Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), are becoming more prevalent in the United States and Canada, as they are a cost-effective and proven way to manage congestion and improve public transit. Last November, the Montgomery County Council unanimously approved plans for an 80-mile RTS on roads throughout the county. Please visit our website at to learn more about the RTS plan.
