Ridership for Maryland Transit Administration bus and rail lines, hard hit by the onset of COVID-19 in early 2020, has yet to rebound to pre-pandemic levels. In February 2020, bus ridership was just above 5 million. Two years later, in February 2022, bus ridership did not reach 3 million. This decrease is seen across all of the MTA’s services, with Metro Subway ridership standing at 612,000 in February 2020, compared to 122,000 in February 2022. The light rail system has grown the most percentage-wise since its lowest point during the pandemic. In April 2020, light rail saw 46,000 riders, and that number has more than quadrupled, up to 188,000 as of February 2022.
