Participants from Baltimore Area Encouraged to Apply Through April 3, 2024


BALTIMORE, MD (March 14, 2024) – The Maryland Transit Administration is seeking the diverse perspectives of Baltimore-region community members, business owners and other stakeholders impacted by the development of the Red Line to participate in the agency’s Community Advisory Team (CAT). Those selected will provide input and feedback into the planning and design processes for the Red Line, a high-frequency, high-capacity transit line for the Baltimore Region, relaunched by Governor Wes Moore in June 2023. The Red Line addresses a major gap in east-west transit service between Bayview and Woodlawn, through downtown Baltimore City.

“The Red Line project is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to build stronger, more equitable and prosperous communities throughout greater Baltimore,” said Maryland Transit Administrator Holly Arnold. “The Community Advisory Team will be a valuable resource to ensure we receive comprehensive input from community members who live, work and invest along the corridor and that our efforts to engage with the public are effective.”


The CAT will serve as a vital link between the Red Line project team and the communities along the proposed corridor. Community members selected to serve on the CAT will support the Red Line project team to develop meaningful, relevant community engagement and bring diverse community perspectives, context and priorities forward. Additional details on the CAT and member responsibilities can be found on the dedicated webpage


Baltimore-area community members interested in serving on the Red Line CAT are encouraged to submit a Statement of Interest. Submissions will be accepted through April 3, 2024, and selections are expected to be complete by mid-May.


There are four easy and convenient options for individuals to express their interest:
