Welcome to the Baltimore/Washington metropolitan area!
The first thing to be aware of is that Greater Baltimore’s transportation system is not always convenient but it is improving! If you’re considering living off-campus, please plan ahead to make sure that you have a viable public transportation option to get to campus easily using the UMBC shuttle routes or the public MTA bus system routes #35 and #77. 

This section will provide you with useful information on how to get around the Baltimore/Washington metropolitan area by using an airplane, a bus, a train, a bike, or a car.
