The Metrobus C2-C4 Line Study (En Español)

Quick Facts:

  • Who is involved? The study is a partnership between Metro, the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT), the Prince George's County Department of Public Works and Transportation (DPWT), and the Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT).
  • What is being studied? Metrobus routes C2 and C4.
  • Where is the corridor located? The existing C2 Route runs between Greenbelt Metro and Wheaton Metro, and the C4 Route runs between Prince George's Plaza Metro and Twinbrook Metro. The segment shared by Routes C2 and C4 serves University Boulevard.
  • Why was this corridor chosen for study? The C2-C4 Line has an average weekday ridership of about 11,000 passengers, one of the highest Metrobus riderships in Maryland. Service and reliability problems will be identified and addressed as the study progresses.
  • When did the study begin? The study began in November 2012 and ended in September 2013. The recommendations will be sent to the Metro Board for approval in Fall 2013.
  • How will service on the line be improved? Please see the links below for reports and graphics associated with the study.
