Riders may now be judging the Maryland Transit Administration by voting with their feet: the MTA reported this week that people took 4 million fewer trips on buses last year. We examine the MTA in light of recent audits that show an agency often lax in handling money.

Then, the legislature is debating several ways to address human trafficking in Maryland – including making it easier for victims to attend community college. We talk to the founder of The Samaritan Women, a long-term restoration program for women who have been trafficked.

Plus, the Baltimore Blast, the city's professional indoor soccer team, has more championships than the Orioles and Ravens combined. They're in their league's championship finals again this weekend. We talk with Blast team captain Pat Healey.
