Transportation impacts everyone in the Baltimore region. Because of this, active involvement by the public is a very important piece of the transportation planning process.
By working together, we can make the transportation system better for all of us. Here are some ways you can have your voice heard:
- Speak at a Baltimore Regional Transportation Board Public Meeting – Each month, the BRTB holds a board meeting to conduct business and vote on regional transportation plans and policies. At the start of this meeting, time is set aside for the BRTB members to hear from members of the public. The monthly BRTB meetings are one place that you can have your voice heard by our regions elected officials and/or representatives from local government, state transportation, planning, and environment agencies.
If you want to make comments at a BRTB meeting, learn more by reading Making Public Comments at BRTB Meetings: A Brief How To Guide (pdf) or downloading the BRTB Public Testimony Rules and Procedures (pdf). Visit our calendar to find out when the next meeting will be held.
- Comment on transportation in our region, the planning process, or a plan – The BRTB is responsible for approving two major documents – the Long Range Plan and the short-range Transportation Improvement Program. There are many opportunities for public involvement in the development of each of these. Tell us what you think by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Write a letter to the editor of your local paper, to your elected representative, or share your thoughts with local transit providers and transportation agencies in our region. Having conversations about transportation and sharing your ideas is essential to making the region better for all of us.
