Fairgoers Urged to Take Convenient Light RailLink Service August 24 through September 4


BALTIMORE, MD (AUGUST 9, 2017) – With the Timonium Light RailLink stop just a short walk from the entrance to the 136th annual Maryland State Fair, the Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Transit Administration (MDOT MTA) will again offer easy access to this fun 12-day event. MDOT MTA’s LocalLink Bus 93 also offers a great connection to the fair.

LocalLink Bus

Fairgoers can take LocalLink 93 to the Timonium Fairgrounds stop on Greenspring Drive, just a short walk to the fair entrance.

Passengers from downtown Baltimore can use the CityLink Red located at Baltimore and Green streets to the Lutherville Light RailLink stop and transfer to LocalLink 93.

Passengers also can use LocalLink 52 from North Avenue to Macy’s at Towson Town Center on Dulaney Valley Road and transfer to LocalLink 93.

Metro SubwayLink

Customers can take Metro SubwayLink to the State Center/Cultural Center Station, walk about one block to the Cultural Center Light RailLink stop and take Light RailLink northbound directly to the Timonium Fairgrounds.
