The Official MTA Maryland Thread

Recommended Posts

I'dhad to oopen this thread feel free to comment on the busy busagency. Of Baltimore and suburban areas

 

For starters i want to comment on a possible separation of MTA-MD 15 into two routes. ..15 from CMS Security to Center area and the second. Route relabeled #55 from center city to Bel Air...another hhypothetical separation is maintain the current #15 run from Social Security. To Overlea bus Transfer and there have a new route (#55) run every 2 hours to Bel Air centre and thus have connection with Harford Transit ...to methe second option is rather the best

I've got some friends out there who are trying to get to get me to make the move to MD and I was thinking about putting in an application with MTA Maryland. How is the life out there? In general and regarding B/O Operations?

For the most part is identical as New York some bus routes are 24/7 like the 8, 15, 35 as well as the 14 and 17 advancing to U of MD in the center afterhours. ..some stores are 24 hours to me is more identical to Philadelphia than NYC and not as dead as Washington which at 3am is sparsely inhabited

 

MTA-MD is a good job and the bus lines are coordinated. As well as the Subway and Light Rail

for a future MTA-MD 83 bus to run from White Marsh mall to Harford Mall via Belair Road bihourly

 

it is the best option to connect Baltimore to Bel Air and a possible connection to Havre de Grace via Aberdeen will be a reality 

 

all is to wish that the bridge that connects Havre de Grace to Perryville has a pedestrian walkway installed by this a trip from Bmore to Perryville will be $4.40 or $2.70 if coming out from White Marsh mall and itineraries of the proposed MTA-MD 83

 

hope Maryland Transit Administration can implement this route a reality

NOW HERES WHERE IT TICKS ME OFF A LITTLE BIT...WITH ALL THESES CHANGES AND MODIFICATIONS THE AGENCY HAS NOT LOOK DEEP IN THE BOX WITH AN INCLUSION OF A BUS ROUTE TOWARDS BEL AIR DEPARTING FROM WHITE MARSH MALL WHERE THERE ARE CONNECTION TO MANY MTA-MD BUSES LIKE FOR INSTANCE THE #35 TO CENTER CITY...LIKE MENTIONES A FEW MONTHS AGO THE MTA-MARYLAND SHOULD HAVE JUST ONE UNIT TO RUN ITS ROUTE FROM WHITE MARSH MALL TO BEL AIR WHICH ACCOUNTING OF HEADWAYS WOULD BE BIHOURLY THAT IS IF YOURE DEPARTING FROM WHITE MARSH MALL AT 10AM THERE WILL NOT BE ANOTHER BUS TIL 12PM AND SO ON AND VICE VERSA WILL BE 9AM 11AM 1PM SO ON...THE NEW FACT IS THE NEW RENUMBERING WILL LIKELY BE IN THE TRIPLE DIGITS BUT THIS ROUTE MUST COME INTO EFFECT ITS A MUST AND WITH MUCH IF THE BRIGDE CROSSING AT SUSQUEHANNA RIVER DELTA COMES TO EFFECT BY HAVING A PEDESTRIAN WALKWAY...WITH THIS ONE WOULD PAY NEARLY HALF THE NOMINAL FARE FROM BALTIMRE TO PERRYVILE AT$4.40 SINCE TAKING TWO MTA BUSES ARE $3.40 AND THE H.T. 1 IS JUST A MERE DOLLAR...WELL THATS IS ALL TO EYES OF THE TRANSIT AGENCY THIS ROUTE IS A MUST IF THERES AN ACCESS TO ANNAPOLIS WHICH IS FARTHER AWAY THAN BEL AIR WHY NOT A BUS ROUTE TO BEL AIR...THIS WILL FILL UP THE GAP OF LOCAL BUS AGENCIES BETWEEN WASHINGTON AND PHILADELPHIA

 

WELL HOPE SOME OF YOU MARYLAND RESIDENTS ENJOY THE NEW BALTIMORE LINK HOPE SOMEDAY TO RIDE THIS NEW LOOK OF MTA MARYLAND AS MUCH THE NEW COLOR SCHEME HEHE...SALUTATIONS
