Free circulator bus service will be extended to Fort McHenry
in Locust Point
, city officials said Monday.
Called the Banner Route, the new service will provide a free bus link to the historic site beginning in June, in time for bicentennial celebrations of the War of 1812.
U.S. Rep. John P. Sarbanes
joined Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and his father, former Sen. Paul S. Sarbanes, in announcing the Charm City Circulator
service to Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine on Fort Avenue.
Funding for the Banner Route was made through a $1.6 million grant from the federal Department of Transportation to the city government.
