Light rail service extended for game, concert at arena

December 18, 1998|By Amy Oakes | Amy Oakes,SUN STAFF

With the fifth-ranked Maryland Terrapins hitting the court tomorrow night against Princeton and award-winning country singer Shania Twain strutting across the stage Sunday night, state transportation officials said they will extend service this weekend to accommodate the sold-out events at the Baltimore Arena.

Fans leaving the arena, which can hold at least 13,000, won't have to worry about being stranded after the game or the concert. The game between the 10-1 Terrapins and the 5-2 Tigers is scheduled to begin at 9: 30 p.m. tomorrow. Twain is scheduled to take the stage at 8 p.m. Sunday.

Light rail service will be available until 11: 45 p.m. tomorrow, but operations personnel will be available after that time if needed, said Anthony Brown, a spokesman for the state Mass Transit Administration. The service, which runs every 17 minutes, normally ends at 11 p.m. on Saturdays.

On Sunday, light rail service will be extended an hour to benefit Hunt Valley Mall shoppers and fans going to the Twain concert. Sunday service usually ends at 8 p.m., but trains will be running from the arena after the concert.
