There’s something else I can say about BaltimoreLink: It’s mostly on-time. By on-time, I mean the bus comes when the GPS-based Transit app says it will come. Transit app provides real-time tracking of the buses, and I have found it to be reliable, down to the minute. So I now pay almost no attention to scheduled time. The MTA considers their buses to be on-time if they arrive within seven minutes of the scheduled time. A lot of riders still rely on posted schedules because they do not have smartphones. But many do, and if they’re not using Transit, the app should be better advertised. The MTA also should let the commuting public generally — not just bus riders — know that real-time tracking exists. If more Marylanders knew about this, more would try mass transit.
