Transportation in and Around Baltimore
Baltimore has an extensive bus system, operated by the Maryland Transit Administration. The bus network includes several express and commuter buses, as well as a light rail network connecting Hunt Valley to Baltimore-Washington Airport, as well as a subway line between Owings Mills and the John Hopkins hospital. There is also the Charm City Circulator, a shuttle bus service for Baltimore’s downtown area. Baltimore also has an intercity rail system for Amtrak, for which the famously busy Penn Station is the hub. The rail system provides service to both Baltimore airports.
For bicycle riders, Baltimore features an extensive system of routes and trails. The Gwynn Falls, Jones Falls, and the Herring Run trails all connect various parts of the city, with friendly green signs showing the distance to various destinations.
Drivers in Baltimore will want to be wary of the city’s prime spots for traffic jams and congestion: I-695, I-70, I-95, and the Jones Falls Expressway (or JFX) are among the most busy and packed of the city’s roads, especially during rush hour. Baltimore is rated as one of the worst cities in the world traffic-wise, ranking #5 in a recent study, so visitors to Baltimore may want to take some of the hassle out of their trip and charter a bus from Metropolitan Shuttle for transport around the city.
