The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) approved a pilot program to sell ad space in County parking garages in Bethesda and Silver Spring.

Advertising space will now be open at four garages: Town Square, Cameron-Second and Wayne Avenue garages in Silver Spring and Bethesda-Elm and Woodmont Corner garages in Bethesda.

County spokesperson Lorraine Driscoll said MCDOT officials made the decision to sell advertising in public parking garages after gaging interest from local businesses.

“We made a decision to follow the interests and make these ads available and promote it,” Driscoll said.
