After months of delays caused by problems in the delivery of buses, Baltimore will launch the second of three planned lines for its free Charm City Circulator shuttle service Monday. The new north-south Purple Route will run downtown from Ostend Street in South Baltimore to Penn Station, operating at 10-minute intervals. The line will intersect at Pratt and Lombard streets with the circulator's east-west Orange Route, which began service between Harbor East and the Hollins Market in January.

Steele Stanwick (Loyola High) fed fellow senior attackman Chris Bocklet for a fourth-quarter goal that proved to be the difference as No. 5 seed Virginia outlasted visiting Princeton, 6-5, Sunday afternoon in NCAA tournament first-round game. The six goals were the fewest the Cavaliers (12-3) had ever scored in an NCAA tournament win, and the 11 total goals tied for the fifth-fewest ever in a tournament game. Bocklet and senior midfielder Colin Briggs led Virginia with two goals apiece, while Stanwick - one of five finalists for the Tewaaraton Award, given to the top college player - added an assist.

The first route of the Charm City Circulator - the long-delayed free bus service promised for central Baltimore - will make its debut Jan. 11, according to the city and the Waterfront Partnership. Previous start dates have come and gone for the project, but the city's deputy transportation director, Jamie Kendrick, insists this one is for real. "That's a hard, fast and furious date," Kendrick said. He said the reason for the holdup was a delay in receiving delivery of the clean-energy buses from the manufacturer.

Baltimore added a third line to its free Charm City Circulator service Tuesday, with the launch of the new Green Route at Johns Hopkins Hospital. The Green line will run from Hopkins Hospital through Fells Point and Harbor East before heading north to City Hall and the Fallsway. It will then head back to Hopkins along the same route. The Green joins the east-west Orange Route, launched in January 2010 as one of the last acts of Mayor Sheila Dixon's administration, and the north-south Purple Route, which got its start later that year.

The Baltimore Transportation Department will launch the Circulator by beginning service on its east-west Orange Route between Hollins Market and Harbor East via the Inner Harbor. It plans to start two other routes -- a north-south route between Penn Station and Federal Hill and a route connecting Johns Hopkins Hospital with Harbor East and City Hall -- in the spring.

Baltimore kicked off its newest version of free downtown bus service Monday morning as the Charm City Circulators began service on its Orange Route from Hollins Market to Harbor East via downtown. Making one of her last public appearances before her resignation takes effect next month, Mayor Sheila Dixon hailed the Circulator — which uses hybrid diesel-electric buses to reduce emissions — as a way to reduce single-operator vehicle traffic downtown. "It's going to be cleaner and greener and it's really going to help us move downtown," she said at a news conference at the Convention Center.

Theresa Kelly figures she's saving $550 in parking by taking the Charm City Circulator from her home in Harbor East to the University of Maryland nursing school. Courtney Kellum uses the "wonderful" service every day, hopping on the free bus in Mount Vernon to get to her job at the Kona Grill on Pratt Street. Navy veteran Tom Ryan rides it between the homeless shelter where he stays and the Veterans Administration on Greene Street. The three Baltimore residents are among the thousands who have come to depend on the Circulator, which made its debut on the streets of Baltimore a year ago Tuesday.

Can the Circulator be your designated driver? Well, sort of. When the Charm City Circulator launched in January, most people saw its potential to get commuters from one end of downtown to another, to transport tourists and to help out the environment with hybrid transportation. Kate Hendrickson and her friends saw its potential for something else: barhopping. After all, the Orange route, and later the Purple route, go by some of the bar-heaviest neighborhoods in the city. Hendrickson , a 25-year-old publicist who also uses the bus to get to work, organized a large bar crawl she and her friends dubbed the "sparkulator" that took them to 12 bars in one night.

For downtown workers, the corned beef sandwiches at Attman's and Lenny's just got a little more accessible at lunch hour. Harbor East is a little closer to Camden Yards. And the doctors and nurses at University of Maryland Medical Center can duck out for a snack at the Hollins Market or Little Italy without taking a car. The Charm City Circulator, the long-awaited free downtown shuttle bus, made its debut Monday morning with the launch of its east-west Orange Route. Proponents have high hopes that the new bus service - using hybrid diesel-electric vehicles to cut down on harmful emissions - will win widespread acceptance among tourists and residents, and improve mobility downtown.
