Grant for Langley Park transit center
Plans to build a transit center in Langley Park to serve bus riders in Montgomery and Prince George's counties got a boost Tuesday when members of Maryland's congressional delegation announced a $818,300 federal grant to design and build the center.
The transit center, which the Maryland Transit Administration plans to build at the northwest corner of University Boulevard and New Hampshire Avenue in the Langley/Takoma Park area, would be designed to offer a comfortable shelter where bus passengers could wait out of the weather and a safer place for them to transfer between buses. About a dozen bus routes converge in that area, serving about 30,000 residents, state officials said. The highly congested area also has a high concentration of pedestrian accidents and fatalities.
The transit center also would be a major stop on the state's planned Purple Line light rail line between Bethesda and New Carrollton.
