BALTIMORE — Lateness of service was the overwhelming complaint of Maryland Transit Administration bus and rail riders polled in a nine-month survey, reported The Baltimore Sun.

The alliance issued a series of recommendations to the transit agency, including improved communication with riders who lodge complaints and a streamlined process for fixing troubled bus routes. To read the full story, click here.
