Purple Line Planning Continues
While the Dulles rail project has gained the most attention lately, one of the region's other transit projects, the Purple Line in Montgomery and Prince George's counties, keeps chugging through its study phase.
The Maryland Transit Administration, also in charge of MARC, Baltimore's light rail and the commuter buses among other things, is holding another series of open houses to discuss the Purple Line. Three of the sessions are this week.
-- Today at West Lanham Hills Recreation Center, 7700 Decatur Road, Landover Hills;
-- Wednesday at East Silver Spring Elementary School, 631 Silver Spring Ave., Silver Spring;
-- Thursday at Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School cafeteria, 4301 East-West Highway, Bethesda.
All are from 5 to 8 p.m.
You'll see some new, bigger numbers on potential ridership and some new estimates on travel times along the line, which still could be either a light rail or a rapid bus system. (To me, light rail makes the most sense. You can read the case for that on the Web site of Purple Line NOW!, an advocacy group for the project.)
