MDOT MTA is committed to providing equitable transportation for Marylanders of diverse races, ethnicities, ages, genders, abilities, incomes and preferred languages,. MDOT MTA operates a large transit system with multiple modes serving diverse populations across Maryland. We value all riders and recognize that each of our transit modes serves an important role for the mobility of Maryland residents. Equity must always be a key consideration in how we develop and implement proposed changes to transit service in our core service area and across our system.
The MDOT MTA Service Equity Framework describes the tools MDOT MTA uses to center equity in service planning and best serve the transit needs of our riders. Within this document, you will find descriptions of the processes and analyses we use to ensure that we continue to invest resources to improve access, mobility, and the customer experience of those who need transit most. The Service Equity Framework explains how we plan and make service changes that consider equity throughout the process of developing, evaluating, revising, and implementing service proposals.
