BaltimoreLink Is Here

first_imgIn October 2015, Governor Larry Hogan announced BaltimoreLink, a transformative project to convert the existing antiquated transit lines in Baltimore City into a true transit system, operated by the Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Transit Administration (MDOT MTA). After 19 months of preparation and the implementation of earlier phases—such as Express BusLink and dedicated bus lanes—MDOT MTA rolled out BaltimoreLink June 18. More than 3,000 dedicated employees have worked hard to make sure the transition to the new system goes as smoothly as possible and is delivered with our usual world-class customer service.BaltimoreLink (YouTube)On June 19, many of our customers experienced the new high-frequency CityLink routes and the improved connectivity of our system for the first time. MDOT MTA had hundreds of transit ambassadors on the streets during the first days of BaltimoreLink—providing information on new routes and new bus stops and answering all of your questions as part of our commitment to keeping the public informed. We had maintenance teams working on all bus routes, so your ride home was as comfortable and clutter-free as your morning commute. And, the MDOT MTA Police Force deployed officers on our bus system to make sure your trip was safe and secure.MDOT MTA’s leadership team is directly involved with delivering BaltimoreLink to our citizens. Our top managers have personally committed to riding the CityLink lines during the first weeks of service to make sure it is delivering the frequent, predictable and efficient service we’ve promised. We have added staff in our customer call center and have trained our drivers on all the new routes. And, we’ve been communicating with customers, neighborhood groups, businesses and elected officials to make sure as many people as possible know the benefits BaltimoreLink will bring to our city and our region by connecting people to jobs and easing traffic congestion.As an incentive to get as many Baltimoreans as possible to try the new BaltimoreLink service, MDOT MTA is offering two weeks of free transit rides through June 30. Free rides will be offered on Local Bus, Express Bus, Light Rail and Metro Subway. During the free fare period, June monthly passes and all CharmCard 31-day passes will be half-price. These reduced fare passes can be purchased through June 24. Half-price fares will be offered at all MDOT MTA ticket vending machines, through online ticket sales, at the MDOT MTA Transit Store and at all walk-in MDOT MTA ticket vendors.If you haven’t ridden in a while, or are a new MDOT MTA rider, please take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity to try our improved service free of charge.

Kolkata Police organises campaign prohibiting use of mobile phones while walking on

first_imgKolkata: The Kolkata Police has organised an awareness campaign to make people realise the ill effects of using mobile phones while walking on roads.According to an officer of the Kolkata Traffic Police, it has been noticed that many accidents can be avoided if pedestrians in the city become a bit more careful and avoid using cell phones while walking on roads.A police officer said earlier people only used to speak over phone while walking. Though their concentration used to get diverted, at least they used to look straight while walking. But now the situation has turned worse as people keep texting while walking. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsMany were even found remaining glued to the screens of their cell phones while crossing a road. There were many instances when pedestrians were found walking on city roads using earphones to speak on cell phones or listen to songs. “This is more dangerous as many times they cannot realise that a vehicle is approaching when he or she is crossing a road and it often leads to an accident,” the police said.So, the police have started creating awareness among pedestrians so that they do not use cell phones while walking on roads. The awareness campaign was held mainly at two important locations in the city including Hare Street. Such initiatives have brought down the rate of accidents as Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had launched the state-wide campaign Safe Drive Save Life.The Headquarter Traffic Guard took the initiative to create awareness on this particular issue and it was done by engaging school goers as it is considered that people easily accept when a child requests him or her to follow something.last_img read more
