MTA to hold 20 workshops on BaltimoreLink bus routes

The MTA will hold 20 public hearings on the BaltimoreLink bus system plan.

The Maryland Transit Administration will hold 20 workshops in the next three months to get feedback on its BaltimoreLink plan, a series of new bus routes intended to better connect the area's public transportation.

The plan — Gov. Larry Hogan's $135 million answer to transform Baltimore's transit system into an integrated network linking all the pieces together — includes a color-coded bus network of 12 high-frequency buses called CityLink that will run between Metro SubwayLink, Light RailLink, MARC Train, Commuter Bus, Amtrak and other services, the MTA said.

The other part of the plan, a bus system called LocalLink, is intended to bridge service gaps between those transit services and communities, the MTA said.

The MTA has already incorporated into the plan feedback from more than 60 public briefings and online responses since it was introduced last October, officials said.

"We received a wealth of information and invaluable ideas on how to make this transformative plan even better for our customers," MTA Administrator Paul Comfort said in a statement. "Our customers spoke and we listened.

"And, we solicit more of their input as we move forward with this next round."
