Transit-Oriented Development

Prince George's County is uniquely situated in the Washington region to take advantage of the regional interest in Transit-Oriented Development. The county is home to 15 of the region's 86 Metrorail stations. Within one-half mile of the county's Metrorail stations are over 2,500 acres of undeveloped land, providing ample opportunities for innovative, mixed-use development with a strong emphasis on transit-oriented design. 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.
