Past projects funded by transportation bonds
The Maryland Purple Line Light Rail Project
Maryland's Purple Line has been a long time coming, dating back all the way to 1994. In its final form, the Purple Line will connect the Red, Green and Orange lines of the Washington Metro transit system, from Bethesda to New Carrollton, without requiring a trip into central Washington, D.C. One hundred million dollars of municipal Green Bonds were issued to fund the development of the new Purple Line.
The West Bloomfield Bike Path
West Bloomfield Charter Township, near Detroit, Michigan, is one of many communities that has recently approved a project for bike path improvements. This one is part of the Rails to Trails initiative, in which old, abandoned rail lines are being removed and replaced with recreational bike trails.
Buses and Rapid Mass Transit
Many mid-to-large cities rely on bond funding to upgrade their train and bus systems. The DART system in Dallas, Texas, was just one recent example of a public mass transit system that had its service improved through public investment. As of 2015, DART ran seven completely electric buses, and now runs the longest light rail system in America. If you want to improve the public transportation system in your area, you can take matters into your own hands and help fund it!
