BALTIMORE, MD.  — Today, Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young and the Baltimore City Department of Transportation (BCDOT) announced that beginning on Monday, June 15, the Harbor Connector services will resume.  After receiving notification from local and state health officials, BCDOT will resume operations with limited routes and capacity, in accordance with COVID-19 CDC guidelines. Mayor Young issued the following statement:

“Bringing the Harbor Connector back in service is a key step for our City’s transportation infrastructure as we continue our COVID-19 response,” Mayor Young said.

Starting at 6:00 a.m. on Monday, June 15, 2020, BCDOT will begin Harbor Connector service with the following guidelines:

Operations:

  • Service will run from 6:00 a.m. through 8:00 p.m. (continuously).
  • Vessels will only be allowed to fill 50% of capacity (24 seats) for social distancing requirements.
  • All passengers must wear face coverings while riding the Harbor Connector.
  • No mid-day breaks in service will be taken to address the reduced capacity and provide additional ridership opportunities.

Routes:

  • HC #1:  Maritime Park to Locust Point
  • HC #3:  Pier Five to Federal Hill Harbor View

Please note that the Harbor View Pier is now open to the public and will replace the Rusty Scupper Pier.  The Rusty Scupper will no longer serve as a Harbor Connector Pier.

For the latest information on Harbor Connector services, passengers are urged to check the BCDOT website at transportation.baltimorecity.gov.
