Amtrak, Md. MTA complete bathroom accessibility renovation

BALTIMORE — Transportation officials told the Baltimore Sun that Amtrak and the Maryland Transit Administration finished ahead of schedule a $1 million project to renovate bathrooms at Penn Station in Baltimore, in part to make them accessible to individuals with disabilities. The bathroom renovations included new fixtures and more accessible stalls.

The agencies will invest $2.2 million more over the next 18 months on a new ADA-compliant passenger information display system, expanded community programming on the plaza and the launch of a multimedia experience for visitors arriving by rail. For the full story, click here.
