[Baltimore Sun] MTA strikes out with light rail to Camden Yards | READER COMMENTARY

Read Time:50 Second

On Sunday, April 14, the Maryland Transit Administration and Baltimore Light RailLink had an opportunity to shine. Many people attempted to use the light rail system to go down to Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Unfortunately, someone was proverbially asleep at the switch (“A to-do list for upgrading public transit around Baltimore,” Feb. 29).

Our train had only one car. Not only were there no seats, but as we got closer to Camden Yards, there was absolutely no room for riders to get on the train! Why didn’t anyone check the Orioles schedule and realize that every train needed more than one car to carry passengers to the home game?

This was a completely missed chance for the MTA to show occasional riders that mass transit is, in fact, a good way to get to the ballpark and back. Shame on you, MTA.
