It’s here!  The Charm City Circular, a fleet of 21 free hybrid shuttles are making rounds in Baltimore City.  Baltimore’s new and free shuttle made it’s debut on January 11, 2010, with the Orange Route, the first of three routes in service.

According to the Charm City Circular site:

The CCC consists of three separate routes—the Green Route which runs from City Hall to Fells Point to Johns Hopkins, the Purple Route which runs from Penn Station to Federal Hill,  and the Orange Route which runs from Hollins Market to Harbor East.

The DesignLine system utilizes a “clean burning” turbine, or the smallest combustion engine on the market. The body design reduces vehicle weight by up to 3 tons over other systems, resulting in approximately 2.25 tons less greenhouse gases a year.
