The Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) Maryland Transit Administration (MDOT MTA) recently announced that the service adjustments proposed on September 1 for Local Bus, MARC and Commuter Bus will not be implemented and all public hearings on that plan will be canceled. Core Local Bus and MobilityLink service in the Baltimore area will continue to operate on current schedules while Commuter Bus and MARC service will begin operating at reduced levels on November 2. The decision to make this adjustment is due to current of ridership trends across the modes and the significant public feedback MDOT MTA received on the initial proposal.

As MDOT MTA works to meet budgetary constraints amid the fiscal impact of COVID-19, the agency will continue to prioritize transit service for core riders, especially transit dependent households. Effective November 2, MDOT MTA will resume the following service levels, which were in place earlier during the COVID-19 health emergency:

MARC Train will operate on an enhanced R service schedule service. For Camden Line passengers, only trains with an R under the train number in the timetable will operate. Some trains make additional stops as noted with an R in lieu of a train time in the timetable.

This plan allows MDOT MTA more flexibility to respond to changes in transit demand as Maryland’s economy recovers. Riders needing more information can visit or call the Transit Information Contact Center at 410.539.5000.

Thank you for riding MDOT MTA.
