Charm City Circulator Launches Updated GPS App
Friday Jan 11th, 2019
New smartphone app and website features project bus arrival times
The Baltimore City Department of Transportation today announced the launch of the Charm City Circulator’s updated smartphone app and bus tracking feature. With this new technology, citizens will now be able to easily see helpful information about the arrival times and locations of Charm City Circulator buses. The mobile app is now available for download on all app stores.
Circulator buses that travel along the Orange, Green and Purple Routes are equipped with GPS tracking to provide vehicle locations in real time. Through the use of the new smartphone app, citizens will be able to conveniently check bus arrival times at each stop along the Circulator routes. This information is updated in real time, and arrival times will be automatically adjusted if any service delays occur.
In addition to the new mobile app, an updated Bus Tracker Map is now in operation. The tracking map will show where each of the circulator buses is located along their designated routes, making it easier and more convenient for citizens to ride.
Citizens can now download the specialized smartphone app and bus tracker map onto mobile devices free of charge. This information can also be found on the Charm City Circulator website’s ‘Quick Links’ and ‘Bus Tracker’ tabs. Please note that these features are not yet available for buses along the Banner Route, but are expected to be operational soon.
The Department of Transportation encourages riders to utilize these new features to enhance their Circulator experiences. Since the inception of the Charm City Circulator back in 2010, this award-winning service has served over 25 million passengers in and around Baltimore’s downtown district. Citizens can download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play today!
