BRTB Seeks Comments on Updated FY 2023 Budget and Work Plan

BMC Newsroom

The Baltimore Regional Transportation Board (BRTB) welcomes comments on its draft updated work plan and budget through Thursday, March 10, 2022.

The BRTB is scheduled to vote on the updated budget for FY 2023 on Tuesday, April 26, 2022.

What is the UPWP?

The BRTB’s Budget & Work Program is known as the Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) for Transportation Planning. It is a federal requirement that details projects, studies and other activities to be completed by BRTB members and staff of the Baltimore Metropolitan Council (BMC).

The BRTB develops this list of regional transportation planning activities every two fiscal years. This UPWP includes an updated budget for FY 2023 of $7,370,000. UPWP funds support staff for regional planning activities with some consultant assistance.

Several of the new proposed projects for FY 2023 include:

  • Safe System Approach: Support a safety culture that places safety first and foremost in road system investment decisions. To achieve a zero deaths vision, everyone must accept that fatalities and serious injuries are unacceptable and preventable.
  • Thirty Percent Design for Bicycle Trails: Advance planning for a segment of the Patapsco Regional Greenway to include all steps necessary to complete what is known as thirty percent design.
  • RTP LOTS Skills and Technology Support: Support the improvement and expansion of skills and access to technology for the Locally Operated Transit Systems (LOTS) in the Baltimore region.
  • Expanding Coverage for Electric Vehicle Charging Stations: To support regional and equitable expansion of public light duty electric vehicle (EV) charging station infrastructure in the region.
  • Considerations and Preparations for Connected and Automated Vehicles: Develop customized recommendations for the region to prepare for connected and automated vehicles.
