WATCH AN ONLINE UPDATE OF RED LINE CANCELLATION ON FACEBOOK ON SATURDAY, JUNE 25TH 1-2 P.M.
Join the Baltimore Transit Equity Coalition (BTEC) as we mark the 7th Anniversary of the Cancellation of the Red Line 🙁 and share an update on what has happened to help complete the Red Line light rail project through establishing a Baltimore Regional Transportation Authority (BRTA) 😀. This is online this Saturday, June 25th from 1-2 p.m on https://www.facebook.com/moretransitequity/.
The Baltimore Transit Equity Coalition was formed from the Baltimore Red Line Title VI Initiative, a group of community economic development advocates in west Baltimore who helped plan the Red Line as a transportation and community development project.
The Federal Transit Administration is in the process of conducting a Title VI investigation of the Red Line's 2015 legal cancellation as possibly discrimination against African-American and low income communities. Incidentally, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits the disparate and adverse impacts on African-American and low income communities accompanying the Red Line’s cancellation.
After the 2015 cancellation, the Baltimore Transit Equity Coalition was formed to build a broad political coalition in Baltimore and beyond that will push to reinstate and ultimately construct the Red Line light rail.
