Route 160 (MTA Maryland)

Route 160 is an express bus route that operates to downtown Baltimore and Johns Hopkins Hospital from two locations in the Essex, Maryland area: Fox Ridge and Whispering Woods. The line serves the Essex Park-and-Ride lot, then operates via I-95 through the Ft. McHenry Tunnel.


Route 160 started operating under this designation in 1991. The line was formerly Route 12. After the route number change, selected trips on different dates during the 1990s were extended to Oliver Beach and Fox Ridge.

In 2005, as part of the Greater Baltimore Bus Initiative, MTA considered eliminating Route 160 in favor the new QuickBus 40 that would start operating limited stop service between the Essex Park-and-Ride and downtown.[1] But four AM and four PM trips were retained.

On February 7, 2010, trips to/from Oliver Beach was shortened to Whispering Woods.[2]
