BALTIMORE, MD (Thursday, December 7, 2023) – Today, Mayor Brandon M. Scott released the following statement on the Maryland Transit Administration's decision to suspend all light rail services effective tomorrow. 

“We’ve been in touch with the Moore Administration about this issue and have been working to identify workaround solutions for residents who rely on Light Rail – especially in Baltimore’s historically underserved communities – and ensure Light Rail services resume in a timely manner. Thousands of Baltimoreans depend on the light rail to get to and from work, school, doctor’s appointments, and other crucial parts of life. A prolonged suspension of services is simply unacceptable, and we will be doing everything in our power to ensure MTA addresses the necessary repairs as quickly as possible.”
