The Baltimore City Department of Transportation said on Wednesday it has launched a new community engagement survey to solicit feedback on the city’s new transit development plan.
The city’s Transportation Department is developing a Transit Development Plan (PDT) for its Charm City Circulator bus service and the Harbor Connector ferry shuttle service. The TDP will provide the ministry with a guide to meeting the city’s transit service needs for the next five years, outlining possible service changes and prioritizing service improvements.
“This five-year transit investment strategy will identify opportunities to improve existing Charm City Circulator routes and increase equitable service capabilities,” said Mayor Brandon Scott. “Transportation is a key quality of life issue, especially for people living in underserved communities.
As part of the process, the Transportation Department will be asking residents to provide feedback on the Charm City Circulator and Harbor Connectors services through an online survey. It will help identify current and future transit opportunities, as well as challenges. Feedback from the survey will be used in the development of the TIP.
“The Department of Transportation strongly encourages all residents, visitors and transit users to participate in this important community survey,” said Director Sharkey. “Community feedback is valuable information that is needed for our planning process and the creation of the TDP, which will help shape the future of the Charm City Circulator and Harbor Connector service in Baltimore City for the next five years. “
The investigation will be open until November 30, 2021. The transportation department will also be holding virtual public meetings regarding the TDP, the first on November 16 at 7 p.m. on streetofbaltimore.com.
