After a record number of passengers overwhelmed the light rail before and after the downtown stadium's first game Saturday night, Maryland transportation officials said yesterday that they would try to persuade more football fans to ride buses to the new Ravens stadium.About 13,000 passengers rode the light rail Saturday, exceeding the system's capacity -- and officials' pre-game estimates -- by more than 60 percent. The crush caused some fans to miss the kick-off of the Ravens' pre-season opener, and left some waiting by the tracks for more than an hour and a half after game's end.Dianna Rosborough, deputy administrator for the state Mass Transit Administration, said transportation officials will meet tomorrow to begin looking for ways to better manage the flow of tens of thousands of football fans.
