As a matter of safety and improving the transit experience for our customers and all our state’s citizens, the Maryland Transit Administration works continuously to maintain and improve our infrastructure and facilities statewide. Here are some of the projects we’re working on currently and those that are most likely to have an impact on the traveling public.
