The Purple Line Project requires the Concessionaire to finance, develop, design, construct, equip and supply light rail vehicles for, and operate and maintain, a 16.2-mile light rail transit line that runs from Bethesda to New Carrollton, extending east-west inside the Capital Beltway within the Maryland suburbs north of Washington, DC. There will be 21 stations and 26 light rail vehicles on the new line.
This new line will provide connections to several existing transit providers such as the Washington Metropolitan Metrorail System. It improves mobility to major economic and job centers: Bethesda, Silver Spring, Takoma/Langley Park, College Park, New Carrollton as well as the University of Maryland.
The procuring party is the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) and the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) (together, the Owner).
The funding includes $367m of Green Bonds.
