By David Schultz

Much like the D.C. Circulator, the Charm City Circulator runs buses in and around Baltimore's downtown area and its inner harbor.

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.
