Purple Line Information Available Online

Public meetings about the proposed Purple Line are being held regularly in neighborhoods in the County. With nine of the proposed 21 Purple Line stations located in the Silver Spring area, now is the time to stay informed.

The Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) is studying the feasibility of a new east-west, high capacity transit line, dubbed the “Purple Line,” that would connect communities in Prince George’s and Montgomery counties; provide additional transportation capacity in the congested corridor between New Carrollton and Bethesda; provide faster, more reliable connections between existing Metro, MARC and Amtrak stations; and support economic development in both counties.

For the most current information, check MTA’s website.
