Baltimore Link is a redesign of MTA’s bus transit network. It has 3 levels of bus service: (1) 12 City Link color-coded bus routes; (2) Local Link – local buses to fill in gaps; (3) Express Bus Link – express busses for longer-distance, commuter-oriented trips. It was announced in October 2015, and the first comment period went until January 2016. To learn more about the Baltimore Link visit www.baltimorelink.com.

SPEAK OUT AGAINST THE MAJOR REDUCTION OF SERVICE IN SOUTHEAST BALTIMORE:
- Retain the Navy Route bus down Eastern Avenue
- Provides no City Link route that serves Downtown, Harbor East, Fells Point, and/or the Boston Street corridor
- Does not provide an Express BusLink from Harbor East to a Park and Ride in White Marsh/Bel Air to reduce the number of single-driver commuter traffic through Southeast
- Eliminates the Number 7 and 31 with no equal replacements
