Proposed reductions in service a result of budget cuts
The sources of revenue that support the operation of MTA's MARC Train and Commuter Bus services have declined dramatically since the start of the fiscal year on July 1. Regrettably, MTA must reduce its budget, and while the majority of reductions are taking place in the administrative budget some MARC Train and Commuter Bus services are proposed for elimination.
The public is encouraged to provide input regarding the proposed modifications. MTA will hold public hearings throughout the State from November 17 through November 25, 2008 to receive public comments on these proposals. Citizens may provide comments at any hearing that is convenient, or may send comments directly to the MTA by mail or e-mail. All comments received by December 26, 2008 will be considered before proposals are finalized. >> View a list of hearing dates or full details of the proposed cuts <a href="http://www.mtamaryland.com/Commuter_MARC_Hearings.cfm">http://www.mtamaryland.com/Commuter_MARC_Hearings.cfm</a>
