Hatem Bridge to get Taxi Service?

Maryland State Bicycle Pedestrian Coordinator Micheal Jackson announced that a plan is being implemented to create a formal subsidized taxi service to assist bicyclists and pedestrians to cross the Susquehanna River. Proposal includes telephones at each side of the bridge along with a sign that gives the phone number and price of the authorized taxi service. The firm that will be picked to run the service will be evaluated to make sure their vehicles will be prepared to carry bikes.

The Hatem Bridge is the Route 40 bridge over the Susquehanna River between Cecil and Harford Counties in Maryland. A pilot water taxi service that was proposed for last summer did not get off the ground.
