Hit Reverse on Transit Cuts
While we have seen short-term decline in all transportation use due to COVID-19, the long term trends are likely to continue as they have: people are increasingly demanding access to public transportation, safe biking and walking routes, and modern ride-share options.
Now is not the time to disinvest in transit. As we respond to the COVID-19 crisis, and work to safely reopen and recover, we must do so in a way that moves Maryland forward, expanding our choices, while losing fewer lives to traffic jams, car accidents and toxic fumes.
Tell Governor Hogan to reject these shortsighted cuts to the MTA operating and capital budgets.
