Building upon the infrastructure improvements associated with the launch of BaltimoreLink, MDOT MTA is working with local jurisdictions to increase bus reliability, speed and passenger safety throughout the BaltimoreLink system. MDOT MTA has pursued a data-driven approach to identify opportunities in the system, focusing on reliability, bus speeds, and travel delays at bus stops. Potential targeted investments to the roadway that prioritize transit riders include curb-extensions at bus stops, transit signal priority, dedicated bus lanes, queue jumps, and more. For more information, please contact transitpriority@mta.maryland.gov.

Transit Priority Toolkit

MDOT MTA has created a Transit Priority Toolkit to assist neighborhoods, elected officials, transit planners and transportation engineers to consider how potential transit prioritizing treatments can fit into the roadway. This toolkit identifies improvements that can be tactically implemented to address bus travel delays, bus reliability, and also safety improvements for those who walk or ride bicycles to connect to transit.

Corridor Prioritization

MDOT MTA has pursued a data-driven approach to select and prioritize opportunities for transit-prioritizing investments. MDOT MTA's BaltimoreLink Frequent Transit Network, made up of routes that run every 15 minutes or better, was analyzed based on quantitative measures including bus reliability, bus speeds, dwell times, and ridership. This analysis identified segments of roadway that will most benefit from transit-prioritizing investments.

Belair Road/Gay Street Corridor

The Belair Road/Gay Street corridor has been identified in partnership with Baltimore City Department of Transportation as the first candidate for targeted transit-prioritizing investments. MDOT MTA is gathering public input to aid in selecting specific locations where infrastructure improvements would be most beneficial to transit service and pedestrian safety.

A concept plan was shared on Tuesday December 10th from 4pm-7pm at the Humanim Building (1701 N Gay Street Baltimore, MD 21213). Documents from the meeting can be downloaded below and are open for public comment until January 11, 2020. Any comments or questions can be emailed to transitpriority@mdot.maryland.gov or you can reach the project team at 410-424-799.
