TransNet

TransNet is a transit option designed to provide convenient, low-cost transportation. Initially it focused on meeting the needs of senior citizens and disabled persons, doing so through exclusive relationships with existing Montgomery County taxicab companies. Today the organization is complex and comprehensive, the direct result of decisions made in the late 1980s. TransNet serves groups of seniors and disabled persons, and contracts with school districts, colleges, and private companies to offer specialized transit services and commuter shuttles.
