Welcome to the CCT

We welcome you to the Corridor Cities Transitway (CCT) website and encourage you to browse through the website to stay connected to the project. We have provided maps, graphics, and text which is designed to inform you about the project and offer ways to contact us with any questions or comments you may have.

The CCT is a 15 mile project in Montgomery County, Maryland from the COMSAT facility near Clarksburg, Maryland to the Shady Grove Metro Station. The project has two phases. Phase I is 9 miles from Metropolitan Grove to Shady Grove. This Phase is actively underway and is currently proceeding with engineering and environmental analysis and is funded for formal environmental documentation, final design, and right-of-way acquisition. Phase II would be a future extension from Metropolitan Grove to the COMSAT facility near Clarksburg, and would be developed as land use matures and additional transportation funding becomes available.
