Three new destinations are to be served with a modified alignment that includes a combination of one to three alignment shifts to the existing Master Plan alternative. These possible alignment shifts occur to serve the Crown Farm development, the LSC, and the Kentlands Market Square shopping center located adjacent to the Kentlands community, targeted for redevelopment into a transit-oriented mixed-use development.
Each destination is served with alignments that spur from the original Master Plan alignment. The alignment will generally run as a dedicated surface transitway adjacent to existing roadways. The new alignment modifications are described and shown on the map to the left. Detailed descriptions may be found in the November 4, 2009 document, Corridor Cities Transitway: Analysis of Alignment Alternatives Serving Crown Farm, Life Sciences Center and Kentlands.

The alignment serving the Kentlands deviates from the Master Plan alignment at the intersection of Great Seneca Highway and Muddy Branch Road. The CCT will run:
