Catch a clean, green ride in Baltimore

Published January 11, 2010

Baltimore City has launched a free shuttle service that is clean and green, and ready to help residents and visitors get to their favorite downtown attractions!

The Charm City Circulator (CCC) features a fleet of 21 hybrid shuttles that travel three routes around the city and arrive every 10 minutes. The National Aquarium, Baltimore is among the stops on the orange route, which began service today. Some of us at the Aquarium enjoyed a ride this morning and we urge everyone in town to check it out! 

The City of Baltimore has promised that the service will be FAST, FRIENDLY and FREE, and CONNECTED to all there is to do in the heart of the city, like business meetings or a ball game.

But above all, this service will be COOL. Baltimore's never seen a ride like this one - it's sleek, comfortable, and GREEN. With zero emissions it will even help keep the planet cool. The CCC fleet features  DesignLine 2009 EcoSaver IV LF Hybrid Electric vehicles—the first fleet of this type in a major metropolitan area. The service is intended to reduce congestion and greenhouse gas pollution.

Need another reason to start riding today? The National Aquarium and other local attractions are offering discounted admission opportunities to everyone who rides the circulator this week. Discounts are good through January 18th so catch your ride today!

For more information visit the Charm City Circulator website.

You get on the highway, but something strange happens … despite driving for hours, you end up back where you started. You feel sluggish, confused and exhausted.
