Are you or someone you know a resident who wants safer neighborhood streets? Are you an employer who needs employees that can get to work on time? Are you a transit rider who wants more reliable service? Maybe you're just looking for a better understanding about how transportation impacts lives. Then Transportation 101 is for you! Come be a part of the next cohort of resident change makers, like the Transportation 101 alumni pictured above.

 

The Transportation Alliance is now accepting applications for our Transportation 101 workshop! Transportation 101 is a FREE, 7-week class in which participants learn from local experts and leaders, network with other interested residents, and ultimately put what they learn into action. Transportation 101 is designed to educate Central Maryland residents on the critical role that transportation plays in the quality of life for neighborhoods and in creating economic growth for all.

 

Classes will be held from 6 pm-9 pm every Thursday from May 3 - June 14 at the UM BioPark (801 W. Baltimore Street, Baltimore, MD 21201). Dinner will be provided and childcare options are available. Space is limited so don't delay. Click below to learn more and apply!

Help get House Bill 372 over the finish line!

We're another step closer to securing more funding for Baltimore-area transit needs and planning for the region's transit future. House Bill 372 has been passed by the House and will be on the Senate floor later today. You can use our simple Take Action tool to urge your representatives to support HB 372.

House Bill 372 does three key things for transit in the Baltimore region:
  • Increases the operating and capital budgets of the MTA for the next three years
  • Requires the MTA to conduct a comprehensive capital needs assessment to identify all maintenance needed to achieve a state of good repair
  • Creates a long-term transit plan for the Baltimore region


After the Baltimore Metro recently suffered a month-long emergency shutdown due to degraded infrastructure, it's clear that our transit system has been neglected for too long. And since the cancellation of the Red Line the region has lacked a clear vision for for the future of its transit system. HB 372 can set us on a path to getting adequate funding and planning for the future. Click the button below to send your own message in support of HB 372.

Do you support our mission of improving the transportation system so that it grows the economy, gives us choices, and keeps us healthy? Please consider a donation to the Transportation Alliance today. Thank you!
