I’m a “local” (live just outside the city) and used the Circulator recently for the first time in a long time (to avoid paying for parking downtown). On the first trip, I didn’t have to wait especially long (probably the 10-15-minute window, as promised). It was a little confusing, because the circulator now uses generic black “shuttle”-type buses, not at all what you’d expect to see in a bus. The actual bus is pretty upscale, though, with cushy seats (kinda like an airport shuttle). On my trip back, I definitely waited longer than 15 minutes - probably closer to 25 - and this was right in front of the aquarium, on Pratt Street. The shuttle this time was packed, and the guy sitting next to me was slightly sketchy (kept talking to me, keeping a pipe in his mouth). But overall, I got in and out of downtown for FREE, so the Circulator still seems like a great option. Yes, there were a fair amount of sketchy/trashy-type people on the bus. But that’s not the bus’s fault; that’s just Baltimore, unfortunately. The Circulator doesn’t go to any *super*-dangerous areas, so I still felt comfortable taking it, overall...

I was hesitant to use this service but so glad I did. It is free! Downloaded the app to determine the stop closest to my hotel and to know the time it would be at each stop. and The times in the app were very accurate. The day I rode, the bus was not crowded and the driver was nice.

Did not experience the other routes, which seem to get reasonable reviews, but the Green Line was not great! Don’t believe the ‘10-15 minutes’ scheduling - we waited 30+ mins for the 2 times we used it. You’d better know the route pretty well, & where you want to get off, because there are no signs or announcements. It seems to be mostly used by locals who are ‘down on their luck’. Very few tourists used it when we did. It’s a free service (the big Plus). We felt uncomfortable on both the trips we took. On the first we were racially abused by 1 ‘customer’. On the 2nd there was another who spent most of the trip harassing a female local. I could not in all consciousness recommend this form of transport to other visitors, although as I say our experience was strictly the Green route.
I shared my thoughts via the CCC’s website Survey, but have not received any feedback.

How could you not give five star to a city that is promoting free busrides to everyone who wants to go along?

Convenient and reliable, just hop on and explore the city

Wir wollten mit dem Bus ein bisschen herum fahren und die Stadt erkunden. Leider kam er zuerst eine ewige Zeit nicht, nämlich etwa 15 Minuten zu spät. Dann sah er komplett anders aus, nämlich viel kleiner, komplett schwarz lackiert und das Zeichen der Gratis-Bustour war hinter der Scheibe kaum zu erkennen.... darüber hinaus hatten wir unseren ersten Point of Interest schon fast zu Fuß erreicht.

My husband and I used the Purple Line. Our Mt.Vernon stop we were staying at the Hotel Revival and used it to the Inner Harbor. There are no announced stops - use your phone to track your travels to know when to get off. It is a free bus. The unique passengers will not bother you but be prepared to be hit up for money as soon as you get off at the bus stops. We found it mostly up at the Mt. Vernon area. Everyone has a story . . .
The buses were clean and comfortable.

The free part is very helpful. The purple line goes to the harbor and drops off not too far from the aquarium. I didn't have to wait too long for a bus on the way to the harbor or on the way from the harbor to Penn Station.

Issues: the circulator did not have maps on the bus. Penn Station didn't have any circulator maps. Stops are unclear and not announced (not so helpful for tourists unfamiliar with the area). In my opinion, the drivers I experienced weren't remarkably friendly or helpful (charm city perhaps a misnomer). You can probably pull up a map on your phone, however, I'm not sure I'd want to have my phone out on the bus. As a free resource, it does get crowded, and is popular with the locals. Two locals got into a small argument on the afternoon bus (happily, it was resolved quickly and didn't escalate). It was unclear where the bus departs from the harbor area. It actually picked up across the street from where I thought it would pick up, but I managed to dash across the street in time to catch it.

Ultimately, one must weigh the free aspect compared to perhaps quicker methods such as Uber or taxi. A circulator ride does afford one a view of perhaps the truer side of the city rather than just the pretty harborfront.

There is more than one route for these buses. For a trip during the day to a far pat of town from your location, this is a good idea. It would help to know the routes and the times. It's free.

I read some of the reviews here and found myself a little concerned about using the circulator. I had a bad experience using the MTA City Link busses to get around and wondered how much worse a free service would be.

Boy was I wrong!

I rode the Purple CCC to and from the Inner Harbor to Johns Hopkins Homeview Campus. Overall I rode four different busses over two days between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.

I am disabled (in a wheelchair) and I found the drivers and passengers to be very helpful and accommodating. The busses have easy to use ramps and space to lock in your chair and even special buttons that alert the driver they will need to deploy the ramp at the next stop.

The buses were mostly clean, newer style and other than people of unusual odor, not in any way dirty or scary.

Yes, there are homeless folks getting out of the cold, there are also commuters, teenagers, tourists and everything else under the Baltimore sun. If you’re easily intimidated by other humans who might be different than you are, I suggest you just avoid Baltimore all-together. This isn’t a city for you.

On my last trip from Mount Vernon to Charles Center the entire bus busted out in a sing along to “Wheels on the Bus” thanks to an enthusiastic toddler who hopped on at one point. Don’t be afraid, be open, you never know what you’ll get.
