State transportation officials will hold seven public meetings this week to talk about a study that seeks to improve Baltimore-area bus transportation.

The Comprehensive Bus Study will evaluate the Maryland Transit Administration's bus schedule and determine whether changes should be made, according to MTA officials. The public meetings are intended to give bus riders a chance to learn about the study and offer comments on current routes.

MTA officials say bus service represents more than 70 percent of ridership, but it's been almost 30 years since a comprehensive study has been conducted of the routes.

Meetings are scheduled as follows:

Tomorrow, 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., Catonsville library, 1100 Frederick Road.

Tomorrow, 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., Towson library, 320 York Road.

Tuesday, 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., Pascal Senior Center, 125 Dorsey Road, Glen Burnie.

Wednesday, 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., North Point library, 1716 Merritt Blvd.

Wednesday, 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., Weinberg YMCA at Stadium Place, 900 E. 33rd St.

Thursday, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., War Memorial Building, 101 N. Gay St., lower level.

Thursday, 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., Westside Skill Center, 4501 Edmondson Ave., Room 224.
