Dating back to the 1964 General Plan for Montgomery County, the
Corridor Cities Transitway (CCT) is the Red-Line Extension that
links the Shady Grove Metro Station to Clarksburg, with an
ultimate extension to Frederick.
The Upcounty Community must join together to ask
our State Elected Officials to support the CCT. The important
thing to remember about the CCT is that it is needed now and it is
ready to go.
The CCT is Needed Now
Congestion on I-270 has reached an intolerable level in
Montgomery County and is projected to worsen daily,
negatively impacting the lives of all citizens and
The CCT is a
logical transit extension of the Red line, which will remove
thousands of cars from I-270 daily, improving commute times,
quality of life, and air quality along the I-270 Corridor.
transit-oriented development along the Corridor is waiting
for the transit to happen. Crown Farm, Metropolitan Grove,
Germantown and Clarksburg all have transit stops and will
all need additional transportation infrastructure. The I-270
employment corridor needs the CCT to reach its full
potential as a designation for employers.
