Users of the Maryland Transit Administration's bus system will be able to track buses in their area via their smartphones and other mobile devices starting this fall, one of many changes announced Monday as part of the agency's multiyear bus improvement plan. Riders will also see updated bus schedules, additional MTA supervisors showing up along bus routes and increased service to certain job centers, such as the rising Horseshoe Casino Baltimore on Russell Street. The changes are part of the agency's Bus Network Improvement Project, which was launched last summer with the goal of improving service using the input of local residents.

The Maryland Transit Administration will hold four open houses this month for area residents to share their views about designs for the 20 light rail stations planned along the east-west Red Line. The first meeting is scheduled for Saturday at Edmondson High School. At the open houses, members of the Red Line Station Area Advisory Committee will display results of their work over the past six months. According to the MTA, 250 community "stakeholders" have been participating in discussions aimed at planning locations, designs, access, development implications and other matters relating to stations along the 14-mile line from Woodlawn to Bayview.

Editorial from The Aegis | May 6, 2014
If the pick-up and drop-off situation at Bel Air Elementary has been resolved, why are so many parents dropping off and picking up? It all started with the opening of school this past August, the first new academic year under a new regimen for deciding which students walk and which get bus rides to school as part of an ostensible cost-cutting measure. At Bel Air Elementary, a lot of students who had been given bus rides in the past were obliged to walk, and many parents decided to drive them to school instead.

The opening of the first phase of the Intercounty Connector is not expected before October, but Maryland is preparing for its debut by ordering 18 "clean diesel" commuter buses for eventual transit service on the highway. The Maryland Department of Transportation's recently awarded $9.1 million contract for purchase of the buses from Motor Coach Industries of Schaumburg, Ill., will go to the state Board of Public Works for approval next week. Rather than have the Maryland Transit Administration operate the buses, the department plans to hand the job to a private contractor in an arrangement similar to that on its existing commuter bus routes.

THE PROBLEM -- Bus arrival times listed at a Maryland Transit Administration stop in Baltimore County do not make sense. THE BACKSTORY -- Say you want to board the M-1 MTA bus in Milford Mill and go to its last stop at the Mondawmin Metro station. The schedule posted on a pole in the 8100 block of Liberty Road gives riders a long list of options. You can grab a bus at 4:52 a.m. and 5:29 a.m., which seems reasonable enough. But the next bus comes at 5:60 a.m. Then, a little while later, another bus is scheduled at 6:61 a.m., then other at 7:60 a.m., 8:64 a.m. and 9:61 a.m. (More strange times appear on the M8 schedule.

After two weeks in Baltimore, I have found precious jewels obscured in sadness: The city's beautiful row houses. These grand dames line the streets of Harford Avenue, Biddle Street and East North Avenue, to name just a few locations. But the life has been expelled from them. You may wonder why a stranger from Kansas would care so much for broken properties. First, I love architecture and find beauty in the cut and curve of a building. And I have been in search of a place to call home.

As nearly 38,000 Harford County Public Schools students get ready to start classes for the 2013-14 school year on Monday, Aug. 26, a number of changes in school bus routes and policies have taken effect since last year. School bus schedules and routes for the 2013-14 school year were released last week and can be found on the school system's website and in print in the Wednesday, Aug. 21 edition of The Aegis. Among the changes are consolidating some stops into a single location, the elimination of door-to-school pickup and drop-off for countywide high school magnet program students and elimination of previous waivers that permitted some students to ride a bus when they would otherwise be required to walk because of the proximity of their homes to their schools.

Money generated by the casino and sent to Anne Arundel County government would pay for the new route connecting the airport and its train station to the Arundel Mills mall.

Commuters between Harford and Cecil counties will soon have a public transit option for crossing the Susquehanna River, one with a fare that is $4 less than the toll motorists pay to use the bridge. Maryland Transit Administration and county officials launched the first inter-county public transportation route Monday with the oldest crossing, an aging railroad bridge, and the newest transit bus models from each county in the background. "Two jurisdictions have partnered for the first time to bring this great opportunity to their citizens," said Elizabeth Kreider, MTA director of local transit support.
