The development and implementation of a comprehensive and effective multi-modal public transit system is essential to Baltimore’s long-term sustainability, prosperity and relevance. A transit system that provides choices and links people to jobs and opportunities, offers a higher quality of life, a better environment, a healthier lifestyle and supports the local and regional economy.
