The Charm City Circulator (CCC) Purple Route will be extended to 33rd Street on Oct. 5, reaching the Johns Hopkins and Charles Village communities, according to the CCC website.
“The CCC was being restructured to address budget deficits due to increasing operating expenses and cuts to program funding,” a public notice on the website states.
The CCC offers free transportation around Baltimore. Upcoming changes include modifications to the Green and Orange routes. The Banner Route, providing transportation between the Inner Harbor and Fort McHenry, was originally to be eliminated but will now remain open.
Hopkins students will benefit particularly from the new Purple Route stop.
“I think it would be really useful for students to have it come to 33rd Street because it would encourage people to go to the Inner Harbor and different parts of Baltimore more,” sophomore Anna Bartoli said.
