Typical Light Rail Transit (LRT) stations have a platform, shelters, benches and fare vending machines. The platforms for the stations will likely be around 200 feet long. The stations will be more substantial than a bus stop, but not the size of a Metrorail station. There are no new park and ride lots planned for the Purple Line stations, although there is existing parking at the current Metrorail Stations where the Purple Line connects.

Stations for the Purple Line LPA would be at the following locations:

  • Bethesda

  • Connecticut Avenue

  • Lyttonsville

  • Woodside/16th St.

  • Silver Spring Transit Center

  • Silver Spring Library

  • Dale Drive

  • Manchester Place

  • Long Branch

  • Piney Branch Road

  • Takoma/Langley Transit Center

  • Riggs Road

  • Adelphi Road/West Campus
