Circulator carries 100,000th passenger
The Charm City Circulator, the free bus service inaugurated by the Baltimore Department of Transportation in January, tallied its 100,000 passenger last week.
City officials say the bus service, which now consists of one route that runs from the Hollins Market to Harbor East, has been carrying about 1,200 riders a day. According to officials, the ridership has exceeded their expectations.
The city expects to add two more routes when it takes delivery of enough buses to provide the service. One will run from the Cross Street Market area to Penn Station; the other will connect Johns Hopkins Hospital, Fells Point, Harbor East and City Hall.
City officials identified the 100,000th passenger as Tyrone Harris of Baltimore, who boarded the bus last Thursday. He will be recognized in a ceremony Tuesday at Harborplace.
