Trains: Find the theater two blocks north of Penn Station, on the same side of the street! Just walk on up. Take an easy day trip from Washington, DC or Philadelphia.
Planes: If you don’t want to do cab / Uber / Lyft from BWI Airport, you can take the MARC train to Penn Station (there’s a quick shuttle from the airport to the train station)
Light Rail: There are two lines - one that goes directly to Penn Station, and one that stops at “University of Baltimore/Mt. Royal” which is two blocks away.
Automobiles: Park on the street (mind the hours on the meters). Park in the garage directly across the street from The Charles Theater. Mention that you’re with BIG, and you get a discount!
Public Transit: Take the MTA’s Silver and Green bus routes as well as that of the free but erratic Charm City Circulator. Take 5-minute walk to two Light Rail stops. Download the “Transit” app to help make things easier, if you’re doing public transit: https://transitapp.com
Dockless Vehicle Rentals: Dockless vehicles, including, include bicycles, e-bicycles, and e-scooters which are typically plentiful in our neighborhood. There is more information about them here.
