 MTA TO GET PUBLIC COMMENT NEXT WEEK ON
 PROPOSAL TO ELIMINATE, REDUCE SOME BUS SERVICE
 BALTIMORE, April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mass Transit Administration (MTA) today announced it will hold four public hearings next week to receive comments on the proposed elimination of six bus lines and a reduction in service on four lines.
 The MTA would eliminate the Nos. 43, 86, 87, M-15, M-17 and weekend service on the No. 30. The MTA would also reduce the number of trips on the Nos. 4, 30 and 55 lines, as well as cut out the counter-clockwise loop of the No. 50.
 Consistently declining and low ridership on all of these lines except the No. 87 has prompted the MTA to propose the changes, said Mass Transit Administrator Ronald J. Hartman. The 87 line duplicates the No. 13 Social Security service along North Avenue and the Nos. 15 and 23 along Edmondson Avenue and Cooks Lane and is therefore slated to be cut.
 The following public hearings have been scheduled:
 -- Monday, April 20, Noon-1 p.m. and 7-8 p.m., MTA Headquarters, 300 W. Lexington St., 4th floor conference room, Baltimore.
 -- Wednesday, April 22, 7-8 p.m., Dundalk Community College Business and Industry Building, Room 800 A and B, Baltimore.
 -- Thursday, April 23, 7-8 p.m., Sudbrook United Methodist Church, Fellowship Hall, 501 Reisterstown Road, Baltimore.
 At each hearing, the MTA will make a brief presentation about the proposed changes followed by comments from the public. Testimony relevant to the proposals will be accepted from any interested citizens, representatives of civic or community groups and authorized representatives of public agencies.
 Those who wish to submit written testimony regarding the proposed elimination and reduction of some bus service may do so at the hearing or by mail to Morris Wilson, director of operations planning and scheduling, MTA, 1515 Washington Blvd., Baltimore, 21231. Written comments must be received by April 24.
 The site of each hearing is accessible to persons with disabilities. The MTA will provide a qualified interpreter to assist hearing-impaired persons in understanding the proceedings at each hearing.
