We LOVE the Charm City Circulator (CCC) and think it is one of Baltimore's best assets, which is why we want it to come to Hampden! Please hurry CCC and get it here!
Since the CCC added a plug here for them, we'll add one for ARTblocks too. ARTblocks is a 501(c)(3) based in Hampden whose mission is to provide communities with creative placemaking, a grassroots bottom-up design tool used to identify goals for their public spaces, and to assist in the fulfillment of their goals and projects. In the last three years, ARTblocks has done creative placemaking with Station North A&E District, Greater Mondawmin, Hampden, Highlandtown, Reservoir Hill, and Curtis Bay. Just wait till you see the projects these communities have come up with! All we need now is the CCC to connect them! http://www.artblocks.org/
Meanwhile, here is the plug for the CCC:
"The backbone of any great city is transportation. That’s why we’re introducing the Charm City Circulator (CCC), a fleet of 21 free shuttles that travel four routes in Baltimore City. We service residents, downtown employees, students and tourists and anyone else who wishes to ride. The shuttle is intended to reduce congestion and greenhouse gas pollution by offering a convenient, reliable and eco-friendly form of public transportation.
The CCC consists of four separate routes—the Green Route which runs from City Hall to Fells Point to Johns Hopkins, the Purple Route which runs from Penn Station to Federal Hill, the Orange Route which runs from Hollins Market to Harbor East and the Banner Route which runs from the Inner Harbor to Fort McHenry.
We encourage all of our residents and visitors to use this service—not only is it free, it’s efficient. A shuttle arrives every 15 minutes at the designated stops on each route.
Use it as your connector to your regular train, bus or commuter lot—or just to get a taste of all Baltimore City has to offer."
