Transportation Study

In 2018, the City of Hyattsville commissioned a study to develop a comprehensive plan to improve existing transportation infrastructure, carry out new projects, and determine priorities for the next 20 years. You can review the Hyattsville Transportation Study's final report.

Transportation Options

The City of Hyattsville has access to a wide variety of transportation options.


The City is located on WMATA's green line, and two stops are within City limits - West Hyattsville and Prince George's Plaza. From these stops it is less than a ten-minute ride to some of Washington, D.C.'s, prime neighborhoods for entertainment and work. For more information on schedules and to plan your trip, visit the WMATA website.


The City is served by more than a dozen bus routes. For route schedules, please search the bus route you are interested in. If you need assistance, please call us at 301-985-5000.


The City's Call-a-Bus offers seniors and people with disabilities transportation to medical appointments, pharmacies and grocery stores within a six-mile radius of the City. The bus offers curb-to-curb service from outside a resident's home to their destination Monday-Friday between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. There is no cost to ride and registration is free. Reservations must be made 24 hours in advance by calling (301) 985-5000.

Taxi and Rideshare

Numerous taxi and rideshare services operate in and around the City.

MARC Train

The City is also near the Riverdale MARC train stop. The stop is on MARC's Camden Line, which travels from Baltimore to Washington, D.C.

Bike and Pedestrian Travel

Providing safe and easy routes for bicycle and pedestrian travel is a priority for the City of Hyattsville. In March 2008 a Bike and Pedestrian Safety Committee created a Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. The plan focused on creating a bicycle and pedestrian network connecting the City’s residential and commercial corridors. The Bicycle and Pedestrian Improvements project was made possible through a $110,000 Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) Community Legacy grant. An additional Community Legacy grant awarded $15,000 towards the installation of Capital Bikeshare stations in 2015.

The City continues to prioritize and implement bicycle and pedestrian improvements recommended in the 2018 Citywide Transportation Study and Countywide Plans such as the Prince George's Plaza Transit District Development Plan.
