Transportation Review Guidelines

Copies of the Transportation Review Guidelines, Part 2, 2013 are now available for download here.

In FY 2012, the Planning Department and Department of Public Works and Transportation were successful in obtaining $60,000 in consultant assistance from the Transportation Planning Board of the Council of Governments under the Transportation/Land Use Connections (TLC) Program for the Prince George’s County Transitway Systems Study. The final report of the study has been completed, and the links are now posted on the web at

This project provided a comprehensive study of transitway alignment and modal options in the county, developing and evaluating ways to integrate the countywide transitway network with the preferred growth and development pattern envisioned by the 2002 Approved Prince George's County General Plan. The project included several interagency, interjurisdictional round tables that provided opportunities to gather information from key stakeholders in adjoining jurisdictions, marking the first time a regional discussion was formally conducted as part of a TLC project.

Prince George's County Planning has developed a dynamic web site that allows you to learn about transit-oriented development (TOD) in the county. The newTOD web site is a user-friendly tool that provides information and access to the county’s TOD efforts. There you will find useful links, plans, and Metro station area facts for the 15 stations located in Prince George’s County. We encourage you to explore and ask questions!
