Governor Hogan Has Invested Record Funding In Transit

Hogan Administration Establishes Managed Lanes Transit Work Group

The Hogan Administration Announced The Establishment Of The Managed Lanes Transit Work Group As Part Of Governor Hogan’s Traffic Relief Plan To Address Congestion Across The State. “Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan’s administration is seeking input from transit advocates as it tries to move forward with a controversial plan to use toll lanes to widen the Capital Beltway and Interstate 270. The Managed Lanes Transit Workgroup will discuss how easing congestion on those overloaded arteries could ultimately connect transit riders with more options, the Maryland Department of Transportation said Friday.” (Erin Cox, “As It Pushes Toll Lane Project, Hogan Administration Courts Transit Leaders,” The Washington Post, 5/17/19)

  • As Part Of The Work Group, Federal, State, And Local Transit Officials Will “Collaborate On Ways To Integrate Better Access To Transit And Improvements To Transit Into A Managed Lane Project.” “The transit leaders joined Secretary Rahn, MDOT State Highway Administrator Greg Slater and MDOT Maryland Transit Administrator Kevin Quinn at MDOT Headquarters to determine how MDOT and local transit agencies can work together to move transit riders more quickly on the proposed managed lanes on I-495 and I-270… ‘While we regularly partner with agencies in the region, this work group gives us a great opportunity to collaborate on ways to integrate better access to transit and improvements to transit into a managed lane project,’ added MDOT MTA Administrator Quinn. ‘Integrating transit opportunities into highway projects is key to meeting the comprehensive needs of the region.’” (Press Release, “MDOT Secretary Rahn Joins Capital Region Transit Leaders To Announce New I-495 & I-270 Managed Lanes Transit Work Group,” Maryland Department Of Transportation, 5/17/19)
