Mission Statement

The Purple Rail Alliance is a broad based public education group working to highlight the benefits and ensure the prompt construction of the Purple Line light rail in the Locally Preferred Alternative approved by Governor O’Malley in August of 2009 and as submitted to the Federal Transit Administration.

We will strive to educate the community about the economic, environmental and other opportunities of the Purple Line to Prince George’s County.  We will reach out to the business and populace of Prince George’s County to support the need for the Purple Line and need for the project to receive FTA approval and appropriate funding.  We will work to publicize our support for the purple line, and assist the MTA in obtaining the necessary approvals.
