MARC Commuter Rail

Kaplan Kirsch & Rockwell provided counsel to the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) in the acquisition of rights-of-way from two Class 1 freight railroads for the state’s use in developing the Red Line light rail corridor in Baltimore and the Purple Line light rail inter-county connector in Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties.  Our attorneys represented MTA in extensive proceedings before the Surface Transportation Board and federal circuit courts in connection with MTA’s acquisition and development of its commuter and light rail systems and its efforts to railbank unused corridors.  We also assisted MTA in compliance matters before the Federal Railroad Administration.
