A Baltimore man accused of robbing or attempting to hold up eight Subway and Dunkin’ Donuts locations across the city at gunpoint has been indicted on federal robbery charges.
The FBI and city police have released a pair of surveillance videos taken days apart at local Subway and Dunkin’ Donuts chains in hopes of catching a serial armed robber.
Baltimore’s subway commuters will reportedly need to plan ahead for a second system-wide shutdown this year.
The Maryland Department of Transportation’s Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) is preparing for critical maintenance work that will partially shut down the Metro Subway system for 24 days this summer, and officials are urging riders to plan ahead and use free shuttle bus service to help get them where they need to go.
Yesterday afternoon at the downtown Charles Center Station, a young man threw his cell phone on the tracks of the Baltimore metro-subway train. Then he jumped after it.

Relying on public transit in Baltimore makes me feel like Don Quixote, Ignatius Reilly, and “Ratso” Rizzo all rolled into one. As a rare “choice” rider in this city—someone who could afford a car (albeit a crappy one) but chooses to walk and ride instead—I’m accustomed to ruling out activities in whole chunks of the city. I go out most nights, but this means allocating extra time in each trip for buses that never come, trains that creep at half the speed they could, and long walks to destinations that should have service but don’t.
