Prince George’s County is served by a strong road and transit network. Our county features fifteen metrorail stations, eight commuter stations connecting Washington, D.C. and Baltimore City, one heavy rail station (Amtrak) connecting Washington, D.C. with New York City and Boston, as well as a proposed 11-station light rail system. 

 
 

Prince George’s County’s Strategic Plan—Plan Prince George’s 2035—has prioritized Transit Oriented Development (TOD) as a key factor in creating strong, vibrant, sustainable, and walkable mixed-use communities.

While many Metrorail stations are over capacity, 11 of 15 stations in Prince George's County have the capacity to absorb additional Metrorail ridership growth. The potential for development around each of these metro stations represent economic opportunity for both the County and the private sector. The Washington, DC region’s real estate market is one of the strongest in the country. With a robust regional rail system – the second largest in the country - Metro has been a significant driver of development. The federal government and private sector office users are more often turning to transit accessible sites. There is a growing demand for walkable, mixed-use, transit accessible communities, particularly among young professionals who are key to developing an innovative economy.

Prince George's County is committed to:

  • Supporting quality TOD development that meets county expectations and our identified targets for density, mixed use, and vision.

  • This proposal is intended to "breakthrough" previous real and perceived impediments to TOD at the county's metro stations, and its breadth demonstrates the collective commitment of both the County Executive and the County Council.

  • We invite the private sector to step up and participate in the county's economic growth and prosperity.
