Light RailLink, Local Bus and Metro SubwayLink Service Brings Visitors to the Food and Fun at the Fairgrounds August 23 through September 3

BALTIMORE, MD (AUGUST 23, 2018) – From the midway to the food booths, the Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Transit Administration (MDOT MTA) offers a direct connection to all the excitement at the 137th annual Maryland State Fair in Timonium. MDOT MTA offers riders fast, convenient and affordable transit to this fun-filled, 12-day event.

“Marylanders know the State Fair may be the best 12 days of the summer, so we are thrilled our customers can save on gas and avoid the traffic congestion by taking MDOT MTA transit to the fairgrounds,” 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 enjoy their experience at the State Fair.”
