Getting Around Baltimore

View in Google Maps

Baltimore has a variety of modes of public transportation, from rail to water.

However, the area’s public transit system is poorly planned and not well-integrated, often posing a whimsical challenge to get from Point A to Point B.

Still, a traveler equipped with maps (or a smart phone) and an adventurous spirit can easily use public transportation (in some cases free) to visit major tourist destinations in the city center, harbor area, Fells Point, travel hubs such as Penn Station and BWI Marshall Airport, and outposts including Washington DC.

If you’re visiting, the MTA’s $4 Day Pass is a worthwhile bargain, allowing unlimited rides on any Baltimore bus, Light Rail, or Metro subway. Most Inner Harbor and center city destinations are accessible by the free Charm City Circulator shuttle.

    Where do we catch the MARC from BWI to Camden Yards at 10:30 am Thursday?

    All light rail passes (including one-way) can purchased with credit or debit card at the kiosks.
