After months of waiting, that we’ve detailed previously in this blog, it looks like the Charm City Circulator will finally begin service on January 11. For those just picking up on this saga, the Circulator is a free shuttle service that will bus passengers back and forth on three routes: Hollins Market – Harbor East, Federal Hill – Mt Vernon, and Hopkins Hospital – Fells Point. Using eco-friendly buses, this service would benefit anyone living or working in the downtown area and is a welcome addition to the city’s public transportation system. The delay has been labeled a financial boon as putting a hold on the buses has helped the city to save over $3 million and will allow it to pay off the buses 5 years earlier than expected. Certainly any fiscal relief the city can achieve is a good thing, but I don’t think I’d consider it a more advantageous situation when the city broke a commitment to its citizens and stalled on a desperately needed transportation project downtown. Hopefully we can make it to January 11 with no more issues and all Baltimoreans will be able to enjoy the new shuttle.
