Partial Shut Down of Light Rail Service Starting July 25 to August 11 for Preventive Repairs

Starting on Tuesday, July 25th until Friday, August 11th, MDOT MTA will partially shut down Light RailLink service between the North Avenue and Camden Yards stops in both directions. Light RailLink service to Penn Station will also be closed.

MDOT MTA is doing everything it can to minimize the inconvenience customer will experience during these necessary repairs on the Light RailLink system by providing a “Bus Bridge” along the entire length of the closed sections. Local shuttle buses will stop at each of the affected stations in both directions from North Avenue to Camden Yards. Express shuttle service will run directly to/from North Avenue to Camden Yards without making any other station stops and a separate service will provide a shuttle linking Penn Station to the North Avenue Light RailLink stop.

MDOT MTA asks customers to plan for up to an additional hour of travel time in both directions. The free shuttle bus service will run at 10, 20 and 30-minute intervals based on the time of day with transit ambassadors at each location helping passengers locate the local and express bus boarding areas as well as the shuttle linking Penn Station at North Avenue Light RailLink stop.

Information on bus bridge stops and pickup locations can be found on this page.
