View Proposed Improvements to Charm City Circulator Routes (iOS-friendly version)



Baltimore City DOT is working to develop a new Transit Development Plan for the Charm City Circulator.

The routes prioritize the neighborhoods with the highest percentage of households who don’t have cars and close gaps in places where MTA buses don’t cover with the circulator’s service area.

This plan recommends changes to these routes based on a data- and equity- driven approach. The proposed changes make meaningful connections from where people live to shopping and employment centers and other priority destinations including grocery stores and hospitals.

We are holding a public comment period from April 18 – May 13th to hear feedback on the proposed service improvements that will be outlined in the Transit Development Plan.

Please leave your comments below or send us an email at streetsofbaltimoreTDP@wrallp.com.

    • Adjusting weekend hours from 9 a.m.-9 p.m., rather than the current 9 a.m.-midnight period on Saturdays and 9 a.m.-8 p.m. on Sundays.
    • Changes to existing routes and the addition of a new Cherry Route.

    OPENING OF TDP PROCESS

    The Baltimore City Transit Development Plan (TDP) is a planning process that will develop a five-year transit investment strategy for the Charm City Circulator (CCC) bus and Harbor Connector ferry service. The Plan will identify opportunities where the Charm City Circulator and Harbor Connector services can improve transportation routes and equity within the Charm City Circulator and Harbor Connector service capacity.

    Why Interesting to the public and what it will accomplish

    Mayor Brandon Scott issued a February 2021 Transition Report that outlines strategies for Building an Inclusive, Equitable Economy. The Transition Report outlines five potential actions related to the BCDOT public transportation program. The TDP is intended to address the transportation recommendations as outlined in Mayor Brandon Scott’s Transition Report. The TDP’s final deliverables will include strategies and potential route changes to the existing four Charm City Circulator routes and three Harbor Connector routes including:

    • Recommendations to reconfigure the Circulator Routes
    • Identifying CCC service gaps
    • Service changes needed to reach employment centers
    • Reconfiguration opportunities with institutional shuttle services
    • Refocus Harbor Connector to serve job centers and accelerate tourism
