The Baltimore County Council will vote this month on whether to approve a contract with an outside firm to plan and study the proposed Towson Circulator, a free bus that would provide travel in and out of downtown Towson.

The proposed contract is with Sabra & Associates Inc., a Columbia-based engineering firm, to compile and analyze data, establish a final route plan and determine the feasibility of the bus. The contract is not to exceed $50,900, according to County Council documents.

A circulator in and around downtown Towson has been an idea floated for years, but did not gain a lot of political traction until earlier this year, when $100,000 of planning money was included in the county budget.
