One-way Streets:

Downtown Baltimore has many one-way streets; Sometimes two destinations in the same block require vastly different routes to access them.

So, please understand which direction they go in order to plan your route.

^ - one-way northbound
v - one-way southbound
< - one-way westbound
> - one-way eastbound


 83 - Interstate 83
 40 - US Highway 40
  1 - US Highway 1
295 - Maryland 295
395 - Insterstate 395

A network of buses serves downtown quite thoroughly. In addition, you will find the following rail stations:

LR - Light Rail Station
M - Metro Station
PEN - Penn Station (AMTRAK, MARC, Light Rail)
CAM - Camden Station (MARC, Light Rail)
