Maryland MTA Launches Bus Line in BaltimoreLink Roll Out

As part of the BaltimoreLink public transit improvement plan to better connect people to employment centers, the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) recently opened a commuter bus route to the largest employer in Harford County, MD, about 35 miles northeast of Baltimore.

The new commuter bus route is one of three such lines called for in the multi-year plan.

“We are committed to delivering a new and improved transit system to connect Marylanders in Greater Baltimore to jobs more reliably and efficiently,” said Gov. Larry Hogan.

“While our commuter bus service has traditionally been designed to bring people to jobs in downtown Baltimore, these new BaltimoreLink enhancements will now connect Baltimore city and Baltimore County residents to regional employers in Harford County,” said MTA Administrator and CEO Paul Comfort. MTA is a division of the Maryland Department of Transportation.

BaltimoreLink, introduced in 2015, provides a long-range framework for developing an interconnected public transit system by redesigning the MTA’s local and express bus systems and adding 12 new high-frequency bus routes that improve connections to jobs and to MTA’s commuter rail, light rail and bus systems.

Specifically, BaltimoreLink features bus-only dedicated lanes, installation of transit signal prioritization, construction of a transfer hub network, rebranding and replacing signage, expanded commuter bus service, bicycle amenities and access to car sharing options.
