From Here, Do Business Anywhere

Planes, trains, metro, cars and bikes: business owners, employees and residents have excellent options for getting around town. In addition to our transportation network within the county, we are next-door neighbors with Washington, D.C. and perfectly situated halfway between Boston and Atlanta, one of the busiest business corridors.

Three international airports within a 30-mile radius

Global business is big business in Montgomery County. We have three international airports with direct flights to many international destinations. And since more than 160 foreign-owned companies have North American headquarters in the county, this offers a big strategic advantage.

Also, Montgomery County Airpark in Gaithersburg provides convenient corporate and general aviation, offering a local alternative to regional transportation.

Metrorail

The rapid transit system of Washington, D.C. is Metro, with hundreds of stops located throughout Montgomery County and across the greater Washington, D.C. areas. Metro buses and local Ride-On buses add to the mass transit options available throughout the county.

Driving

The highway system includes Interstate 70 that runs northwest-southwest, connecting to I-70 in the north at Frederick, and the I-495 Capital Beltway to the south that provides access to DC and Northern Virginia. The Intercounty Connector, or ICC, runs east-west from I-95 to I-270 and has made connecting to Baltimore, Howard and Prince George’s counties much easier.

 

From Montgomery County, it's great to be able to go in and out from 3 different airports or the train. I can move really quickly and easily around the world when I need to.
