Fortunately, driving in downtown Baltimore is fairly easy - the streets are on a simple grid system. Buildings are numbered simply. Rental cars are available from most of the major rental agencies at the airport.

The MTA (Maryland Transit Administration) runs a 27-mile aboveground railway system. It travels north-south from Timonium to Glen Burnie, and stops at Penn Station as well. Light rail is the easiest way to access the downtown area from Camden Yards and the Inner Harbor to the train station, the theater district, or Mount Washington. Day passes are very inexpensive and offer unlimited use of the railway.

The MTA subway system connects downtown with the northwestern suburbs. The same day pass for the aboveground railway is accepted in the subway.

MTA buses are also available and allow access to all areas of the city. Bus fair is reasonable but exact change is required. MTA information, schedules, and rates can be viewed at www.mtamaryland.com.
