Major Infrastructure Investment - The Purple Line

The proposed 16-mile, $2.2 billion Purple Line light rail transit system is the largest transportation infrastructure investment in Prince George’s County since the Intercounty Connector and the Woodrow Wilson Bridge Improvement project. It is envisioned to have 21 stations, 11 of which are in Prince George’s County. 

As a major new east-west connector between New Carrollton and Bethesda in Montgomery County, it will enhance mobility and reduce travel times for thousands of area residents. It will serve as a critical economic driver by linking existing employment centers to emerging development areas and by leveraging public investment.
