REWRITE BALTIMORE’S TRANSPORTATION STRATEGIC PLAN
Baltimore has not updated its transportation strategic plan since 2003. Nick Mosby will bring the plan fully into the 21st Century, setting clear goals for multimodal transit usage, with each mode of transportation supplementing gaps in the others.
JOBS SHUTTLES FOR CENTERS OF INDUSTRY
Difficult commutes are a debilitating employment barrier for Baltimore residents. Nick Mosby will overcome this barrier with shuttle service to job centers like White Marsh, Woodlawn, and the planned development at Sparrow’s Point.
CREATE PRIORITY TRANSIT CORRIDORS
MTA’s 10 highest ridership routes serve nearly half of its total riders, which allows for more effective spending. Corridors that give priority to public transit can serve these high population areas with designs that increase speed, access, and reliability.
PILOT BUS RAPID TRANSIT ON EAST-WEST CORRIDORS
If the MTA eliminates QuickBus, it is imperative that City leadership fills the void it leaves behind. Piloting bus rapid transit can fill that void, while creating a framework for a higher quality bus system that the City can scale for years to come.
RESPONSIBLE FUNDING FOR AN EXPANDED CHARM CITY CIRCULATOR
Baltimore’s developing neighborhoods deserve access to the Circulator’s superior bus service. Nick Mosby will extend access to these neighborhoods, while partnering with private business to generate fiscally responsible funding for the Circulator.
COMPLETE STREETS AND TRANSIT ORIENTED DEVELOPMENT
Transit hubs should serve as focal points for mixed-use development, with that development utilizing a complete streets infrastructure model that allows pedestrians, cyclists, automobiles, and public transit to safely use transit corridors in tandem.
UPDATING BALTIMORE’S TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT CENTER AND INTELLIGENT TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS
Nick Mosby knows that transportation systems change at the pace of technology, requiring constant analysis and smart investments to allow for maximum impact. We must update our traffic management center and intelligent transportation systems to ease traffic congestion and improve traffic flow.
IMPLEMENTING TRANSPORTATION DEMAND MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES
Nick Mosby will use demand management strategies to create transit plans tailored to an area’s unique needs, using data, incentives, planning, and stakeholder coordination to maximize impact.
WORK WITH THE MTA TO PUT GPS TRACKERS ON BALTIMORE’S BUSES
GPA trackers are vital tools for increasing the reliability of buses, and ensuring riders have up to date information on arrival times.
BIKE SHARE AND PROTECTED BIKE LANES
Bike share programs are low hanging fruit that Baltimore cannot continue to miss out on. Nick Mosby will implement a bike share program, along with a comprehensive bike plan that includes protected bike lanes that connect with one another.
ROLLING BACK PARKING MINIMUMS
Decreasing and eliminating parking minimums decreases the cost of development, which decreases the cost of renting and buying. It also encourages transit usage, and decreases space being wasted on parking lots that generate little in property taxes.
SEAMLESS TRANSPORTATION SERVICES
Nick Mosby knows transit usage must be made easier, and he will facilitate ease of usage by allowing one card or online app to pay for all City transit options.
