The problem: An Ednor Gardens bus stop lacked a sign. The back story: Ralph Williams rides the No. 3 bus often to his Northeast Baltimore home, and he sometimes disembarks a few stops early to visit friends who live off Loch Raven Boulevard near The Alameda. That trip has gotten a little more complicated in the past month, however, because signs marking northbound stops on the east side of Loch Raven Boulevard at Greendale Road have gone missing. One might have been removed after a collision in that area, Williams said, because there was a cone where the pole with the sign on it used to stand.

A man was struck by a vehicle after stepping off a bus near the BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport train station on Wednesday afternoon, according to Maryland Transportation Authority Police. The driver of the vehicle was attempting to pass the bus when the incident occurred about 5:35 p.m. on Amtrak Way, a loop road near the BWI station that serves both Amtrak and MARC rail passengers, said 1st Sgt. Jonathan Green, a MdTA Police spokesman. The man who was struck sustained non-life-threatening injuries but was transported to Maryland Shock Trauma Center as a precaution, Green said.

I got quite a chuckle reading "Hogan's rolling office raises eyebrows" (Sept. 7) regarding Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan's campaign bus. According to the Hogan campaign spokesman, Adam Dubitsky, the campaign pays Mr. Hogan $683.77 a month as "office rent" to use a newly-purchased bus, which is equal to what Mr. Hogan pays to fiance the bus. Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown's campaign called Mr. Hogan's bus a metaphor for the Republican's wealth....

A pair of people drunkenly stole an empty Anne Arundel County school bus, crashed it twice, smashed out the windows and tried to torch it before ditching it in the woods in Davidsonville Tuesday morning, police said. The motive? Travis Edward Champagne and Nicole Jo-Ann Adams, charged in the incident, were "looking for change to purchase cigarettes," police said. During a search, the Anne Arundel County Police Department's Aviation Unit spotted the bus badly damaged under power lines near Governor's Bridge and Strawberry Run roads just before 9 a.m., police said.

Baltimore school bus drivers and aides have reached a settlement with Durham School Services, the transportation contractor that workers sued over unfair wages, according to attorneys for the plaintiffs. The $1.25 million settlement was filed in U.S. District Court on Monday, said Andrew Freeman, one of the plaintiffs' attorneys, of Brown, Goldstein & Levy. It still has to be approved by a judge. The settlement stems from a class action suit filed in March 2013 that alleged the company has not paid workers for the hours they earned carrying out responsibilities required for transporting students, such as pre- and post-trip inspections, and fueling and cleaning buses.

An elementary- or middle-school-age student was shot in the face Thursday while waiting for the bus by what city school police believe was a bb-gun pellet, city school officials said. The incident happened at about 4:45 p.m. in the 2000 block of Fayette St., near Commodore John Rodgers Elementary/Middle School, where the victim is a student, officials said in a statement Friday. The student was struck above the eye, and did not suffer any major injuries, the statement said.

I am an 11 t h -grade student at the Natural Resources Agricultural Sciences magnet school program in Harford County. A common topic of conversation these days with magnet schools is the new bus depot stop program. While many people dislike this program for very good reasons, I enjoy it. I like it because last year I had a bus pickup of 5:30 a.m. This year I leave my house at 6:15 a.m. for the bus pick up at 6:30 a.m. from Fallston High School. I also enjoy getting home at 3 p.m. rather than 3:45 p.m., which is the time I got home last year.

While I do not condone abuse of any kind, the Ray Rice drama is bigger than the Ravens franchise, or Coach John Harbaugh, or the circle of players who gather on their knees in the center of the field at the end of a game in prayerful thanks to a higher power. One wonders how they missed John 8 in the Bible: "But when they continued asking him, he straightened up and said to them, 'Let the one among you who is without sin cast the first stone.'" Are you telling me that Ray Rice is the first and only professional athlete to ever physically abuse a woman or another person?

As the bus rumbled through the streets of East Baltimore, Dana Seibert proudly displayed his handcrafted creation of bright green and orange paper. It read: "My homemade Christmas card to a very special mom. " Seibert, a downtown resident who was taking the No. 35 bus on the way to see his mother, was one of many Baltimoreans whose Christmas activities were made possible by the Maryland Transit Administration — whose employees were working on a morning when many Marylanders were home opening presents under the tree.

Barack Obama had a choice between liberalism and the Democratic Party. He chose the latter and it cost him dearly. Liberalism, as an ideology, insists that government can do good and great things for the people and the world, if the people running the government are smart liberals.The Democratic Party says the exact same thing. But liberalism is an ideal, while the Democratic Party is that ideal's representative here in the real world, and in the real world political parties disappoint.

Tuesday morning in a coffee shop, I heard someone wonder why Brandon Finney, the Shock Trauma surgical technician who was shot to death Sunday night, had been standing near Lexington Market at such a late hour. What was he doing there at 11:30? The question suggested that anyone who ventured after hours near the city's historic market - notable for fresh fish and produce on the inside, and too many drug addicts on the outside - must be either up to no good or asking for trouble. But the answer, it turns out, was simple: Brandon Finney had been waiting for the bus. That's what most people do in Baltimore - the working, contributing, responsible people, that is, as opposed to the losers who degrade and debase the city with their guns and cowardice, with stupidity and recklessness.

The Maryland Transit Administration is seeking public input on changes to its bus system in Baltimore and the surrounding area, including two proposals that would link Dundalk with downtown and serve the new Amazon distribution center on Broening Highway. Under one proposal, a new route No. 31 would run between State Center Metro Station and the Dundalk campus of the Community College of Baltimore County through Harbor East, Fells Point and Canton. The line would run every 30 minutes on weekdays.

Getting their children into the Patapsco High School for the Arts, a magnet school in Baltimore County, was a dream come true, some Randallstown parents said. But then came the reality. From the northwest corner of the county to the school near Dundalk, the journey can take their children as much as two and a half hours one way on public transportation. And that, parents say, is unacceptable. A group of parents went to the school board this week requesting that there be a bus stop somewhere in the northwest area to take the 42 children who live there to the magnet school.

An Owings Mills contractor who has offered the Archdiocese of Baltimore $700,000 to offset transportation costs for children displaced by the closing of 12 elementary schools has taken to the airwaves, encouraging families to take advantage of his offer. He's been on the radio before. Danny Schuster, owner of a concrete company, is well known for his advertisements protesting recent Catholic school closings. He has taken a different tack this time, hoping to boost enrollment by helping students get to schools, including Holy Angels, an elementary the archdiocese is opening this fall on the campus of Seton Keough High School.

Like turning a battleship around in the ocean, steering unsafe public behavior in a different direction can seem an agonizingly slow process. When the behavior is intolerable, it is all the more frustrating. This is the case with the frequency of a dangerous traffic violation — drivers blowing past school buses that are stopped to pick up or drop off school children. In 2011, the Maryland State Department of Education began an annual survey. On a single school day in spring, the department asked school bus drivers to keep count of each violation he or she observed.
