Bad day for the MTA
The Maryland Transit Administration has faced a triple-whammy today as trouble struck on three of its modes of travel.
The biggest disruption was on the light rail line, where bad weather and downed trees shut down the soouthern end of the line. Here's the update from the MTA:
Last updated: June 04, 6:00 PM Due to downed wires, Light Rail is experiencing major delays on the southern end between Camden Yards and North Linthicum. MTA is in the process of implementing shuttle bus service between locations. We ask for your patience and cooperation.
Meanwhile, the MTA warned commuters on the Camden Line of potential flooding at the Laurel station.
Then, there are preliminary reports that a car hit a bus on the No. 20 route at Baltimore and Carey streets, sending at least 24 people to the hospital.
After weeks of relative quiet at the MTA, it's getting ugly out there.
