The Purple Line won’t open until 2020, but you can see what it will look like to ride it with this series of short videos.
Using a jerry-rigged dashboard cam, the Hyattsville Wire drove a section of the planned route from the New Carrollton stop to the College Park Metro stop. Except for a brief elevated section at Riverdale Park, the light-rail line will run on the street, so this isn’t too far off from what it will look like.
Each video is around two minutes long. To view the next video, click “Continue to the next stop” in the purple box at the end of the video. We’ll do the next leg of the Purple Line at a later date.
