For over a decade, Transit Choices has been advocating for a major investment in public transit to connect communities in Baltimore from east to west. This connectivity will provide much needed access to major employment centers and Baltimore destinations, improving Baltimore citizens’ access to opportunities. It will also spur economic development and support transit-oriented development.
We applaud Governor Moore for making this commitment.
