Getting There

Posted 9/16/2009

Like many medium-sized, older cities, Baltimore is a place where great public transit is both in its distant past and on the horizon. In the meantime, however, there are clogged beltways, late buses, and MARC train services that are often delayed for no good reason. The MTA is unresponsive, your family and friends don't care, and your fellow passengers or drivers all seem like they've given up hope. But then, there's Michael Dresser, whose Sun blog Getting There covers both the mundane day-to-day irritations of transit and grandiose plans for the future. He's the most reliable source on the interminable debate on the Red Line, and for the car drivers among us, he keeps up to date with the lane closings and openings as such monstrous projects as the Inter-County Connector near completion. Even better, his blog is a sounding board for the transit-obsessed, with Dresser serving as both mediator and informer for those in desperate need of an open ear, a helping hand, and a quick ride home.
