Working to improve on-time performance, ease crowding, simplify routes and better connect customers to new job opportunities within Baltimore City, including the Amazon Distribution Center along Broening Highway and the Shops at Canton Crossing, the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) will make a series of Local Bus service enhancements beginning Sunday, February 22, 2015. The service enhancements follow extensive public hearings/comments and are part of comprehensive, multi-year plan to build a better bus network, known as the Bus Network Improvement Project (BNIP).
As part of the Local Bus service enhancements, MTA will introduce two new lines:
“These changes are a key step to creating a bus system our customers can rely on and a network that provides more connections to employment and recreational centers in the region,” said MTA Administrator Robert Smith. “Bringing needed changes to our bus system is a major step toward improving our local and regional transportation model as a whole.”
Additional service enhancements will be made to existing MTA Local Bus lines:
Because both the No. 11 and No. 20 Local Bus lines are being split to improve on-time performance, some customers may have to take additional buses to complete their rides. Therefore, MTA suggests these customers buy a $3.50 Day Pass when first boarding, which will enable them to ride the second bus without paying a second full fare. The Day Pass, which is 30 cents more than the existing round-trip fare on MTA Local Bus, also serves as an all-day travel pass on MTA Local Bus, Light Rail and Metro Subway.
