Celebrate Light Rail’s 20th birthday all season while saving time and money

BALTIMORE, MD (APRIL 3, 2012) – The MTA encourages baseball fans to take public transit to the Orioles 2012 home opener with the Minnesota Twins and to all Orioles home games. MTA’s Light Rail drops you off right in front of Oriole Park so you can arrive relaxed, refreshed and ready to cheer.

This season, Light Rail riders have something extra to cheer about. It’s the 20th anniversary of Baltimore’s Light Rail system, which began service in April of 1992, the same year the Orioles began playing at Camden yards.  The 33-stop, 29-mile long Light Rail system serves the north-south corridor of the Baltimore Metropolitan Area from Hunt Valley through downtown Baltimore, and south to Baltimore/ Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) and Cromwell Station (Glen Burnie).

When you choose MTA’s Local Bus or Metro Subway, you’re putting parking and traffic hassles behind you, with no need to leave early in late innings to avoid the rush out of the parking lots. MTA offers several convenient transit alternatives, including:

Light Rail train arrivals every 10-30 minutes at 33 stops offering over 3,400 free parking spaces combined. For games ending after regular closing time (11 p.m. Monday-Saturday; 7 p.m. Sunday) MTA service operates as needed for one hour after the final out. Customers returning to the Washington, DC area are encouraged to take Light Rail to the BWI Business District Light Rail Station or to BWI Marshall Airport. There they can catch Metrobus B30 to the Greenbelt Metro Station. The last posted departure time for the B30 is 10:44 p.m. from BWI Marshall Airport Stop #1. Light Rail Fares are $1.60 one-way, $3.20 round trip, and $3.50 for a Day Pass.

Local Bus Routes 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 10, 11, 15, 19, 20, 23, 27, 35, 36, 61, 64, 91 & the Quickbus 40 & 48. Fares are $1.60 one-way, $3.50 for a Day Pass.
