This Friday, September 22, is Car Free Day! Join thousands of other D.C. residents and trade in your keys for greener modes of transport, such as biking, walking, metro or carpooling.
One of the wonderful things about the D.C. metro area is its biking-friendliness. With scenic paths and designated lanes crisscrossing the city, cycling to work, school, or just for fun is simple and safe. According to reports, D.C. is one of the safest cities in the country for bicyclists.
Montgomery Row is Bethesda’s hottest new townhome community located within walking distance of Westfield Montgomery Mall and Wildwood Shopping Center and moments from all the downtown Bethesda shops and restaurants. Now, the perfect location is even better! A brand new Montgomery County express shuttle stops right at Montgomery Row’s doorstep providing direct service to the Grosvenor-Strathmore Metro station.
Today Montgomery County begins free express bus service between the Grosvenor-Strathmore Metro station and Rock Spring Park, on a route that circles EYA’s new contemporary townhomes at Montgomery Row!
