Public-Private Partnership

Maryland DOT and the Maryland Transit Administration pursued an innovative solicitation approach with the Purple Line. The State has solicited a single private partner (concessionaire) who will be responsible for designing, constructing, operating, and maintaining the project, and the private partner will also help finance a portion of construction. On March 2, 2016, Governor Larry Hogan announced Purple Line Transit Partners as the concessionaire for the Purple Line. This partnership with private industry, commonly referred to as a public-private partnership (PPP or P3), will promote the successful delivery of the Purple Line. P3 Contract provided below.
