For Immediate Release: Friday, June 5, 2020


Every week, Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich and Chief Administrative Officer Andrew Kleine recognize County employees who are “High Risers” -- those who have risen to the challenge of the COVID-19 health crisis. Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) is very proud that its Division of Transit Services Project Manager Tanya Nichols’ exceptional work has been recognized for assisting MCDOT in securing transit emergency relief aid from the federal government. Tanya’s excellent work with MCDOT partners, internal stakeholders and department senior leadership has helped lessen the extreme operational and financial impacts of the health crisis on Ride On. 

 “Tanya Nichols is an outstanding employee who has been instrumental in bringing federal funds to the County to supplement essential Ride On service during the COVID-19 health crisis,” said MCDOT Director Chris Conklin. “I am proud of her and all of MCDOT’s employees who have risen to the challenges of continuing to provide MCDOT essential services during these difficult times.”
