Plans have called for a mass transit line serving the MD 5-US 301 corridor since the 1990s. In 2004, the MD 5/US 301 Transit Service Staging Plan (TSSP) was created as a guide to mitigate transit expansion along the growing corridor. The Maryland State Senate issued Senate Bill 281 which required a light rail study be issued between Branch Avenue Metro Station and White Plains. This legislation was complemented by the 2010 Southern Maryland Corridor Transit Corridor Preservation Study, further detailing the planning process for such a transit connection. In May 2017 the SMRT Final Alternatives Report was released, recommending Bus Rapid Transit and preferred alignment options.
SOUTHERN MARYLAND RAPID TRANSIT COMMUNITY MEETING
Thursday, April 5, 2018
Please join me and the Southern Maryland Alliance for Rapid Transit on Thursday, April 5th, 6:30 PM, as we discuss and advocate for Light Rail and rapid transit on the MD-5/US-301 corridor. This is the single biggest improvement that the State can make to reduce traffic in southern Prince George's County ("South County") and Southern Maryland. It would reduce traffic on the MD-5/US-301 corridor and also greatly reduce
Southern Maryland traffic on MD-210. Please RSVP below.
When: April 5, 6:30 PM- 8:30 PM
Where: Gwynn Park Middle School, 8400 Dyson Road, Brandywine, MD 20613
What: Southern Maryland Rapid Transit Community Meeting
