I put this graphic together if anyone wants to use it to help us gather more support. f.cl.ly/items/2S3B2f3r100a2h2m...
Might be a good thing for supporters to download to Facebook or Twitter with the link: neighborland.com/ideas/balt-th... ?
Let me know if anyone else has ideas: tom [at] neighborland [dot] com
There is a subcommittee of the Hampden Parking Task Force, that I am heading up, that is looking into positioning Hampden as the center of the next Charm City Circulator Route. If anyone is interested in being part of a working group to help make this a reality please let me know. You can email me at george at georgepeters dot com We will also be working with the MTA to make efficiency changes to Hampden's current public transportation. (bus, light rail, and shuttle bug)
A northern route would be great - I'd love to see something connect the Woodbury light rail stop, Hampden, Charles Village/JHU, and Penn Station.
I think a new line starting a Penn Station, this would give access to MARC/AMTRAK/Light rail North on Charles to Station North area, Charles Village, JHU and then turn onto University Parkway passed the Rotunda down Roland Ave to 36th, 36th til Keswick, then head back up Keswick via the same Route back to Penn.
A circulator from mondawmin to woodberry to hampden to Charles street 4 maybe 5 stops would be nice with few stops but quick links. The you can catch the Charles st circulator right to downtown.
I own a business on 36th Street and having the Circulator come to Hampden would be so great for the City as well as for Hampden and it's business owners. It's not that far, and it would be a "win win" for everyone!
The light rail & 27 bus are nice options, and we're lucky to have them here in Hampden. For seniors, a cab to the light rail is under $5, but the MTA bus probably isn't as practical. As someone who travels by public transportation 99% of the time, the CC Circulator would make SUCH a great addition to this neighborhood!
There are so many seniors that would love this. The current shuttle runs very infrequently and is not practical for regular transportation.
As a business owner, I am frequently calling cabs for tourists who, undaunted by the lack of public transportation, make their way up to my Hampden shop and can't get back to their downtown hotel.
The circulator coming to Hampden is absolutely necessary. It's coming up to Hopkins this summer, so why not just extend the route to 36th Street?
