A fourth Charm City Circulator route considered

A fourth Charm City Circulator is being considered by the Baltimore Department of Transportation.

After Monday's story on the circulator's potential for barhopping, some readers wondered what was in the cards for the bus. 

Jamie Kendrick, deputy director of the Transportation Department, said the green line, which was supposed to have launched this September, should come online next spring.

The green line would connect City Hall, Harbor East, Fells Point and Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Kendrick also added that a fourth line connecting downtown to Locust Point - Fort McHenry is under consideration to be launched in 2012 to coincide with the bicentennial of the War of 1812. 

With a patriotic nod, it is being internally called "the red-white-and-blue line."

Kendrick said there are currently no plans to extend hours for any of the lines, though occasionally, they are extended for special events.
