Final Series of BaltimoreLink Public Hearings Starts Tomorrow

The MTA will hold 14 public hearings this month to gather more comments from the community about the BaltimoreLink transit improvement plan that will launch in June 2017 with CityLink and LocalLink. The first public hearing will be tomorrow, Wednesday, January 4 from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at the North Point Branch of the Baltimore County Public Library (1716 Merritt Blvd., Dundalk, MD 21222) and is accessible by taking MTA Local Bus No. 4. MTA values customer feedback and utilizes comments to help guide future modifications and improvements. “Through our public outreach process, we have received more than 2,000 comments at 200 public meetings that have provided invaluable ideas on how to make this transformative plan even better for our customers,” said MTA Administrator Paul Comfort. “We encourage all of our customers to take part in the public hearing process so that they have an opportunity to present their views.” All 14 public hearings are at sites accessible by taking MTA.
