MTA discontinuing 11 bus lines due to COVID-19 pandemic

BALTIMORE, MD—The Maryland Transit Administration announced on Thursday that it would be discontinuing several bus routes due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Beginning on Monday, April 6, in order to more efficiently deploy resources to core bus service, MDOT MTA is temporarily discontinuing all nine Express BusLink routes (103, 104, 105, 115, 120, 150, 154, 160, 164) and LocalLink 38 and 92, which primarily serve schools that are now closed.

The MTA says this strategic modification ensures MDOT MTA is operating lifeline service for essential travel only during the COVID-19 emergency to protect employees, customers, and the community.

“Many of the Express BusLink routes duplicate existing LocalLink service and we encourage riders to evaluate other route options,” MTA officials said in a statement. “Potential alternative service options can be found at”

Riders needing assistance with trip planning can contact the Transit Information Contact Center from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday at 410-539-5000.
