Baltimore Regional Transit Governance and Funding Study

Responding to State legislative interest and at the request of the Central Maryland Regional Transit Plan Commission and the Maryland Department of Transportation – Maryland Transit Administration (MDOT MTA), the Baltimore Regional Transit Board (BRTB) has initiated this effort. The objective of the Baltimore Regional Transit Governance and Funding Study is to develop alternatives for how the region could structure, organize, and fund regional transit services. The BRTB has contracted with a consultant team to work through an iterative and interactive process of research, analysis, and stakeholder input. This process will ensure that the alternatives developed are grounded in experience, respectful of history and constraints, but creative enough to recognize opportunities.


Project Approach & Schedule

The study kicked off in December 2020. The schedule will include monthly meetings through June 2021 and include a report out on the following topics at the regular BRTB meetings.
