Earlier this week, the Federal Transit Administration awarded Baltimore with a more than $1 million grant, that will allow it to buy two new hybrid-electric buses. The buses will extend the Charm City Circulator's reach three miles out to Fort McHenry, known as the birthplace of the National Anthem.

The grant is part of a nearly $25 million program designed to provide public transit to national parks and monuments.
