Mall shuttle may resume in aftermath of slaying

September 30, 1992

An article in Wednesday's editions of The Sun on discussions about bus service between the Owings Mills Metro Station and the Owings Mills Mall suggested that the Mass Transit Administration might restore the M17 shuttle-bus service.

In fact, Dianna Rosborough, MTA spokeswoman, said her agency and the mall were discussing the possibility of the mall running a shuttle bus with an MTA subsidy.

The Sun regrets the errors.

The Mass Transit Administration and the management of Owings Mills Mall are reviewing the service between the Metro station and the mall, possibly to restore the M17 shuttle-bus service which was discontinued in June.


Metro and mall patrons complained to The Sun yesterday about the lack of frequent bus service. They said this forces people to use the winding asphalt path on which Christina Marie Brown, 28, was slain Friday as she walked from the mall to the station.

Callers claimed that waiting 30 to 60 minutes for a bus from the Metro station is not uncommon. They said the discontinued shuttle made a round-trip about every 10 minutes.

To save money and still provide service, the M9 and M16 lines, which run through the Reisterstown-Owings Mills-Glyndon area, were extended to include a loop between the Metro and the mall, said MTA spokeswoman Dianna Rosborough.

Ms. Brown, shot in the head and robbed of her purse, was found dead at 2:18 p.m. Friday beside the path between the Metro and the mall. She worked for a cleaning service employed by Saks Fifth Avenue.
