Holly Arnold, acting head of the Maryland Transit Administration, gives an update on how public transportation is recovering from the pandemic. We hear how MTA plans to reach more jobs in the Baltimore region, and improve on-time performance--about one out of four buses now runs late.

Then, a new report identifies Baltimore’s areas of greatest transit need. We speak with Samuel Jordan of the Baltimore Transit Equity Coalition. He says lagging access poses a health hazard to the city’s Black and brown residents.
