Shortly after crossing into Prince George's County, Route 410 then forms the boundary between University Park

. Shortly after its interchange with the Baltimore-Washington Parkway
Route 410 turns off onto Veterans Parkway, proceeding in a more southerly direction, where it ends at Pennsy Drive in the Ardwick Industrial Park just beyond the interchange with the John Hanson Highway (U.S. Route 50)
Various stretches of Route 410 are served by different Metrorail
stations. Its western terminus at Wisconsin Avenue
is near the Bethesda Metro Station
on the western branch of the Red Line
, while the Silver Spring Metro Station
on the eastern branch of the Red Line
is located at the intersection of Route 410 with Colesville Road
. Further east, the Prince George's Plaza Metro Station
on the Green Line
is located off Route 410 near the intersection with Belcrest Road in Hyattsville
, and the New Carrollton Metro Station
at the eastern end of the Orange Line
is located near the eastern terminus of Route 410. All of the aforementioned stations, and especially the Silver Spring and New Carrollton stations, also serve as hubs for regional buses.
Additionally, much of the proposed route for the Purple Line, a Metro line designed to connect outlying portions of the Red, Green, and Orange lines in the Maryland suburbs with each other, lies near Route 410.
