Absolutely. UB is well served by public transportation options like the MTA Light Rail, Metro Subway and bus system as well as MARC commuter rail, Amtrak, the Charm City Circulator and MTA Bus from Penn Station, just a block from campus. The Bolt Bus, with direct service to New York City, leaves from Maryland Avenue, half a block north of campus.
You can pay with VISA, MasterCard or Discover credit cards or with cash. All stations have electronic vending machines that take all forms of payment.
After the shuttle bus stops running, UB community members can request escort service among UB facilities (including parking facilities) from the UB Police Department.
MTA's Rate Your Ride service allows transit riders to provide real-time feedback about their ride. Visit the Rate Your Ride page or send a text to 30802. This service is provided by the Central Maryland Transportation Alliance.
Zipcar, a car sharing service, operates in midtown Baltimore and has cars available on Maryland Avenue near the UB Student Center and on Saint Paul Street near Penn Station.
Yes. There is a free service, Guaranteed Ride Home, that provides commuters who regularly (twice a week) carpool, vanpool, bike, walk or take transit to work with a safe and reliable ride home when one of life's unexpected emergencies arise. Commuters may take advantage of this service up to four times a year to get home for unexpected emergencies such as a personal illness or a sick child. Guaranteed Ride Home can also be used for unscheduled overtime when your employer mandates that you must stay late.
