Circulator bus stop closed for construction
Last Friday, reader Tim Patterson raised an issue regarding the Charm City Circulator. I'll let him tell about it:
You might want to post on the "Getting There" blog that stop 217 -- Greene Street in front of the M&T Bank Branch at UMMC -- is now closed until construction in that area ceases.
The Charm City Circulator folks have failed to update the website as of 8:30 this morning with this news, and the University and Hospital are both unaware of the fact as well.
The next stop is not until the Hilton, which means if you were planning on getting of the Circulator (when heading Eastbound) near Lombard street, you need to take the stop at Baltimore and Greene, not further down Greene.
I ran that matter by city Department of Transportation spokeswoman Adrienne Barnes, a hard-working woman whose reply came in late Sunday night:
The area by stop 217 has been intermittently opening and closing and we've been servicing whenever possible. We will be closing the stop because we can't provide uninterrupted service. The updated information will be placed on the website for riders to view.
And when I went by the Circulator stop at Pratt and Light streets this morning, there was indeed an electronic message ther saying that stop is closed for now.
