Kirk Division Modernization
The new state-of-the-art Kirk Division facility will support the efficient operation of MDOT MTA’s bus service by accommodating modern vehicles and providing a safe and comfortable working environment for employees and the surrounding community.
North Avenue Rising is a joint project of MDOT MTA and Baltimore City Department of Transportation, with additional funding from the federal Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) program and the Federal Highway Administration, to make a series of targeted transportation investments along North Avenue that support the economic revitalization of the corridor.
Transit Priority Initiative
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. The Belair Road/Gay Street corridor is the first corridor to be identified for potential transit-prioritizing infrastructure between Preston Street and Moravia Road.
