Transportation in Baltimore
Light Rail service is available to go downtown, but your hotel might not be along the direct route. Many passengers will have to transfer to the Charm City Circulator or walk some distance after riding the Light Rail. Please refer to the hotel map for reference and contact your hotel if you have any questions.
To get to the Baltimore Convention Center from the airport using the Light Rail, follow signs down to ground transportation and baggage claim. The Light Rail station is located immediately outside the lower level of the terminal building, adjacent to Concourse E. You will proceed to door #19 and the Light Rail picks up outside. You may purchase tickets at the vending station just outside door #19. A one way ticket is $1.60. Do not purchase a round trip ticket, as it expires within 24 hours. You will take either line to the Convention Center stop. The Baltimore Convention Center is on your right and the Hilton Hotel is on the left.
For schedules, maps, fare details, or other general information, call 410-539-5000 or go to mta.maryland.gov/light-rail.
