Maryland Releases Purple Line Study
The Maryland Transit Administration today released its draft environmental impact study and alternatives analysis of the Purple Line transitway proposed for Montgomery and Prince George's counties. Here's a link to the story in Saturday's Post.
You can read the executive summary here. The MTA considered alternatives that include doing nothing, building various forms of light rail and creating various forms of rapid bus service.
Publication of the study is a crucial step in the lengthy process of planning a transit line, winning federal funding to cover a big portion of the cost and then building it. Release of the report will be followed by public hearings in November. You can see the schedule here.
