As recently noted in the Baltimore Sun, Baltimore City is proposing cuts to the Charm City Circulator free bus service, less than a year after expanding the Circulator’s Purple route and reversing a plan to eliminate the Banner route (“Cuts proposed again to Baltimore’s Charm City Circulator,” July 20, 2016).

As a daily patron of the Circulator’s Purple Route, and having occasionally used the Green and Orange routes, I can attest firsthand to the unique value of the Circulator. The Circulator is an asset to Baltimore City and represents a true public transport success story from which valuable lessons can be learned. Rather than cutting service, the City should work towards expanding this great resource.
