Light Rail service has been shut down Monday morning due to ice accumulation on overhead wires, Maryland Transit Administration officials said.
A shuttle bus service is taking passengers between Hunt Valley and Cromwell to BWI Airport Station. MTA officials said crews were working to restore service to the southern service area, including Cromwell Station and the BWI extension. Service is expected to be restored later Monday morning.
Oh, really? After spending billions of dollars on shiny toy trains, they need to send buses in to rescue stranded riders. We've seen it time and again; in Portland, it's a fairly regular occurrence. A logical person might think that light rail and streetcars aren't a good "investment", and maybe buses are better.
But then, how many politicians exhibit logic?
