YOU TELL US: Should Baltimore Charge for Charm City Circulator?
The Baltimore City Council president suggests a small fee to ride the bus.
During a budget hearing Wednesday, Baltimore City Council President Bernard C. “Jack” Young suggested that the Department of Transportation start charging a minimal fee for riding the Charm City Circulator.
The circulator is a free bus operated by the city that runs on a loop between Federal Hill and Penn Station.
Young said the city should consider charging for the bus, especially in light of other city agencies facing budget cuts.
Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke, D-District 14, joked that she was fine with the service remaining free, as long as it was extended into her North Baltimore district.
