BALTIMORE METRO: TWO, AND GROWING
Baltimore Metro, the rapid transit operation of the local Mass Transit Administration, marked the second anniversary of the opening of its initial 8-mile segment with service characteristics marked by speed and reliability and growing acceptance evidenced by growing ridership. The 6-mile extension now under construction to Owings Mills is due for a 1987 opening. This will increase ridership substantially for its present 40,000 daily level. Funding is available for a 1.5-mile extension to Johns Hopkins University near the central city. Metro has been providing extensive parking at its suburban stations but expects to convert some areas into intensive real estate projects through joint development. There is great emphasis on maintenance of equipment and facilities.
