Maryland Gubernatorial Transportation Forum – April 20, 2022

On April 20, 2022, Bikemore in Action, Transit Choices, Central Maryland Transportation Alliance and The Real News Network hosted a Maryland Gubernatorial Transportation Forum.

The event was held from 6:30 PM -8:30 PM at The Real News Network, 231 N. Holliday Street – Baltimore, MD 21202. Jaisal Noor, The Real News journalist served as moderator.

The forum provided a platform for an important and timely conversation about Maryland’s transportation future. Eligible candidates were given the opportunity to share their positions, vision, and plans to improve our transportation system with attendees. 

The following participating candidates shared their platform on transportation with a diverse and transit oriented audience:

Each candidate was asked to complete a transit questionnaire, prior to the event. The questionnaire responses can be viewed here: Candidate Questionnaire Response Booklet. We have also included responses from Gubernatorial Candidate Wes Moore who was unable to participate in the forum.
