Maryland portal links citizens to transportation

The Maryland Transportation Department last month unveiled its revamped Web site at www.smarttransportation.com. The site offers a portal to information about all modes of transportation in the Old Line State.

Visitors to the site can check traffic conditions via webcams, look up train, plane and bus schedules and get information on the Port of Baltimore. They can also register for the EZ Pass electronic toll deduction system through the site.

The site serves up links to the state's Motor Vehicle Administration for information about renewing tags, driver's licenses and other MVA transactions. Marylanders can renew their vehicle registrations over the site.

According to Maryland Transportation secretary Robert L. Flanagan, the site provides 65 percent of the department's services online.
