Service Will Be Free for Riders, Public Meetings Set to Discuss Proposed Routes
Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski today announced major updates for the Towson Circulator, the planned pilot localized transit service which will provide public transportation to Towson’s core destinations and main attractions.
“Easy access to efficient, reliable transit is an essential element to building a better quality of life,” Olszewski said. “The Towson Circulator represents a critical step toward a 21st century transportation system within Baltimore County and we are proud to have jumpstarted this long-awaited program to better connect residents with where they live, work, study, and play.”
“After so many years of planning, I applaud the County Executive for working to making the Circulator a reality,” said Baltimore County Councilman David Marks. This will improve mobility in Downtown Towson, an area where it is impossible to build more roads to relieve traffic.”
Revised Pilot Feasibility Study Completed
Baltimore County announced the completion of a revised feasibility study which reflects recent growth in Towson and provides recommendations. This new study, completed by Sabra & Associates Inc., updates the prior feasibility study initiated in 2015.
