Baltimore has good transit options, but it lacks a truly interconnected transit network. We need transit to work as an integrated system if we are to strengthen the appeal of this region as a place where people want to live and work, and where companies want to locate and create jobs. The Red Line will provide the key east-west route that connects with north-south rail and bus lines. With links to MTA's Light Rail, bus lines, Metro Subway and MARC Train, the Red Line will be the key to making transit work by ensuring it takes people where they want to go. The Baltimore region requires a modernized and comprehensively connected transit system that residents, elected officials, businesses, civic leaders and transit advocates have worked toward for more than a decade.
