Ms. Jaime McKay Ms. Jaime McKay of MDOT MTA


Maryland Statewide Transit Plan

MDOT MTA is in the process of developing a Statewide Transit Plan (STP) to define public transportation goals and strategies for Maryland’s rural, suburban, and urban regions. The Plan will create a 50-year vision toward increasingly coordinated, equitable, and innovative mobility with a dignified customer experience. This webinar will include an overview of the draft vision and goals of the plan, highlights from the public survey responses, and a summary of existing and projected trends impacting transit. More information on the Statewide Transit Plan is available at www.mta.maryland.gov/statewide-plan.


Jaime McKay is a transportation planner at MDOT MTA with a passion for public outreach and engagement. Ms. McKay is adept at connecting with those who are often left out of planning processes and project implementation, and ensures that members of vulnerable populations, individuals with disabilities, and older adults are meaningfully involved with projects at all stages of development.  In her free time, she enjoys taking photos of trains, cycling to breweries in beautiful downtown Frederick, Maryland where she lives, and she has a one-eyed cat named Linus.

Address:Baltimore, Maryland, United States

Ms. Jade Clayton Ms. Jade Clayton of Maryland Transit Administration


Jade Clayton is a Senior Planner and Project Manager at the Maryland Transit Administration’s Office of Planning and Capital Programming. She is part of a team of seven planners within the Project Development Division, working on a range of traditional facilities planning, public engagement, and strategic and regional planning efforts as well as integration of transit and emerging on-demand mobility and technology. Jade is currently working on the Statewide Transit Plan, ongoing planning to close the gap between MARC and SEPTA, and much more. Since Jaime is mentioning her cat in her bio, Jade would also like to add that she is a dog-person and enjoys city life, and the occasional respite to the mountains, with her two-eyed puggle Bob Wayne.
