July 13, 2010 – Segment 1

Tonight we tackle the big questions surrounding Maryland’s transportation system.  How can we overhaul public transit to make sure it serves the needs of everyone in the state?  What’s the future of the MARC system, the InterCounty Connector, and the buses in Baltimore?  Should we devote more resources to rail, roads, or bike trails?  Our guests are:

Dan Pontius, Transportation advocate and former Executive Director of the Citizens Planning and Housing Association
Otis Rolley, Senior Manager of Urban Policy Development
Gerald Neily, Blogger for Baltimore Brew and Baltimore Inner Space, and former transportation planner with the City of Baltimore
Christopher Field, President of the Transit Riders Action Council of Metropolitan Baltimore
