CAPITOL HEIGHTS, Md. (DC News Now) — Metro asked the public for input on proposed changes at the Capitol Heights station’s Kiss & Ride, Park & Ride and bus facilities.
Metro said that it plans to relocate the bus loop and Kiss & Ride lot, reduce the Kiss & Ride spaces from 15 to eight and get rid of the Park & Ride lot.
A news release from Metro said that the changes would “enable a mix of housing and retail development on Metro property.” This is part of Prince George’s County’s ongoing work to “catalyze transit-oriented development along the Blue Line Corridor.”
