The Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Transit Administration encourages Fourth of July revelers to use public transportation while traveling during the holiday.

Baltimore's CityLink and LocalLink bus systems, as well as the Metro SubwayLink, and Light RailLink will operate on Sunday/Holiday schedules. The Light Rail will run one hour after the Inner Harbor's fireworks display, as well.

The MARC Train, connecting Baltimore and Washington, D.C., will only utilize its Penn Line (Baltimore's Penn Station to The District's Union Station), running on a Saturday schedule. There will be no service on the Brunswick or Camden Lines.

Other than Bus Route 201, which will use a Weekend/Holiday schedule, there will be no Commuter Bus service.

MobilityLink will run on a holiday schedule, but "all standing rides are canceled," The MDOT MTA said. Riders needing the service must call the MobilityLink Call Center, which will be open between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., at 410-764-818.

“By taking transit, customers can save on gas while avoiding traffic congestion and parking hassles,” said MDOT MTA Administrator Kevin Quinn. “We encourage bus riders to download and use the Transit app. Knowing when the bus will arrive will allow riders to better plan and manage their schedules and take the bus that is most convenient.”

Five MDOT MTAs city office locations will be closed as well.
