This video produced by Citizens for Transit gives you an idea of the value the planned Bus Rapid Transit System will provide to the community and how it will function.  The value the BRT provides the college is enhanced by the one-college restructuring of  athletic and academic programs and the shared governance system the college is in the process of implementing.  These initiatives multiply the number of meetings college employees must attend at different campuses.

The rough draft of the proposed BRT system right now has a stop for all campuses of Montgomery College. However, the Rockville campus does not have a stop on the Rockville Pike according to the most recent rough draft of the BRT proposal. This could add a number of minutes to the time it takes to get to the Germantown Campus from the Rockville Campus. The BRT will go right down the Pike and not stop at the college.

Rough Draft of Proposed BRT Proposal

The Rockefeller Foundation is recommending that New York City implement a BRT system.  The president of the foundation, Dr. Judith Rodin, explains why in the video below.

The Office of Student Life organized a festival for Earth Day.  The event was well attended and a lot of fun.  The activities were held inside because of rain.  In the last picture below, students wrote ideas on a poster for how to make Montgomery College more green.  Click on the picture and you can see some of their ideas.
