BALTIMORE - The Charm City Circulator Harbor Connector has been awarded a federal grant to continue operating as an all-electric water taxi service in Baltimore's Inner Harbor.
Sen. Ben Cardin and Sen. Barbara Mikulski announced Tuesday that the U.S. Department of Transportation awarded Baltimore an $854,130 grant to continue operating the water taxi.
The Harbor Connector is a free service for residents, commuters and visitors in Baltimore. It connects Harbor View with Harbor East and is one of five free circulating commuter routes. In a statement, Mikulski and Cardin call it a smart investment in transit.
The city was awarded the competitive grant through the federal 2013-2014 Discretionary Passenger Ferry Grant Program.
