Baltimore County has released two proposed routes and operating hours for the Towson Circulator pilot program, a free bus that would offer travel in and out of downtown Towson.

The county has also submitted an order for a fleet of 12 buses, Americans with Disabilities Act accessible, expected to be delivered in 2021, County Executive Johnny Olszewski Jr. said during a Wednesday news conference. The buses would hold up to 25 people with space for wheelchairs and bikes.

The free bus system will help Towson residents “get to jobs, to campus and to the retail and restaurant offerings” downtown, said County Executive Johnny Olszewski, Jr.

The maps may be subject to slight changes though, according to the county, depending on public comment during two online input meetings on the proposed routes on Nov. 10 and 12.

The two maps give bus loop options, which complement existing Maryland Transit Authority services, and are meant to better connect residents with major hubs, including the Greater Baltimore Medical Center and other area hospitals, Goucher College, Towson University and retail destinations.
