The region needs a system that serves our communities’ needs – one that gives us more say in choosing the transportation projects that work for us and allows us to revive the Red Line! In short, we need a regional governance system through a Baltimore Regional Transportation Authority.
Regional governance over transit is not a radical idea. Most other major cities in America allow local or regional jurisdictions to have some control over transportation systems. It’s this regional governance that allows robust, multimodal transportation systems to thrive!
