Best Road Hogs: East-Side Redline Opponents

The signs boldly state no red line rail on boston street. What that means is, “Cars Only on Boston Street,” or possibly “No Mass-Transit Riders in Fells Point and Canton.” The east-side opposition to the MTA’s proposed Red Line expansion of the city’s skeletal public rail-transit system has been vocal and organized—much more so than those opposed to having surface rail along West Baltimore’s Edmondson Avenue. Seems to us these road hogs should give transit the space it needs. The proposal, if ever realized, will likely be a boon for the neighborhoods closest to it, as public transit has tended to be wherever it’s gone in cities across the country. Everybody wins when the road is shared.
