The MTA is warning of possible delays if protests should erupt after a verdict in Officer Porter's trial.
Bus service is currently running normally, but MTA administrators say they are keeping an eye on the trial.
Officials released a statement saying that "MTA is closely monitoring the Officer Porter trial and travel conditions downtown and will adjust services as necessary due to the potential for heavy pedestrian and/or vehicular traffic. MTA is coordinating closely with Baltimore City officials, including city school personnel and local law enforcement, to ensure the safety of passengers and employees, and to minimize service disruptions."
During April's riots, bus service was suspended, leaving a number of students without a ride home from school.
