MTA has many exciting initiatives underway to develop new facilities and services across Maryland. Click on the logos below for current information about projects.


Red Line Corridor Transit Study.  A project planning study to identify and analyze potential alternatives for a new 14 -mile, east-west Bus Rapid Transit or Light Rail Transit line between Woodlawn and the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Campus.  








The Purple Line is a 16-mile east-west rapid transit line that would extend from Bethesda in Mongtomery County to New Carrollton in Prince George's County.  The Purple Line will be either light rail or bus rapid transit and will operate largely at street level.  Fourteen stations are currently being planned, with additional station locations under consideration.

The Purple Line would provide direct connections to the regional Metrorail system, linking both branches of the Red Line at Bethesda and Silver Spring,  to the Green Line at College Park, and the Orange Line at New Carrollton.  The project would also connect to all three MARC commuter rail lines, AMTRAK, and local bus services.

Corridor Cities Transitway (CCT), part of the I-270/US 15 Multi-Modal Corridor Study. This project is a study of the 14 mile transit corridor originally established in Montgomery County master plans in the early 1970s. The right-of-way has been reserved through the development process. The transitway  runs generally northwest from the Shady Grove Metro Station in Rockville through Gaithersburg and Germantown where it terminates at the COMSAT facility just south of Clarksburg.
