A proposed new bus route would ferry passengers from BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport to the Maryland Live Casino and elsewhere through the Hanover neighborhoods of Anne Arundel County.
Money generated by the casino and sent to Anne Arundel County government would pay for the new route connecting the airport and its train station to the Arundel Mills mall. Preliminary plans were unveiled Thursday night to a committee overseeing how to spend Anne Arundel's $15 million annual cut of gambling money.
George Cardwell, the county's director of transportation planning, said tentative plans are spend $380,000 to buy two 26-seat buses that would begin offering $1 rides in April. The route is not set, but other proposed stops include the neighborhoods of Dorchester and Arundel Preserve and the Baltimore Commons Business Park.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
