crowd of angry bus riders at MTA town hall meeting

Angry bus riders at transit town hall meeting express frustration with BaltimoreLink

Baltimore Transit Equity Coalition president Samuel Jordan participated as a panel member at a town hall meeting on June 26 concerning MTA’s rollout of the new BaltimoreLink bus system. The overwhelming majority of community members who spoke at the town hall meeting were opposed to BaltimoreLink, and demanded that MTA restore Baltimore’s old bus routes and numbering system.

Gov. Larry Hogan announced BaltimoreLink in 2015, claiming it would be a replacement for the east-west Red Line light rail and subway which he canceled.
