Algebra Project lobbies for bus pass extension
Paul Wiedefeld can be glad for the bad weather this week. As a result of the snow, the Baltimore Algebra Project canceled a protest it had scheduled outside the MTA administrator's office. The group is lobbying for the MTA to extend the time that student bus passes expire from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 to make it more affordable for students to participate in extracurricular activities. Wiedefeld denied a request by the school district to extend the passes until 8 p.m.
