Takoma Langley Crossroads Transit Center begins operations
The Takoma Langley Crossroads Transit Center began operating on Thursday, Dec. 22. The Takoma Langley Crossroads Transit Center provides bus service to more than 12,000 customers daily, making it the largest non-Metrorail station transfer point in the Washington region. The center features a large well-lit canopy, ADA-accessible bus loading areas and real-time bus arrival screens. The center also provides an off-street location for safe bus boarding and transfers and decreased vehicular-pedestrian incidents.
The much anticipated opening has resulted in a number of route changes that could impact Takoma Park Metrobus and Ride On riders:
- Metrobus stops for routes C2, C4, F8, J4, K6 and K9 near the new transit center at New Hampshire Ave. and University Boulevard have moved to the transit center.
- Ride On routes 15, 16, 17, 18 and 25 will service the new transit center along with 111 of the UM Shuttle.
