90-Minute FREE Transfer Window for Core Service

When you purchase a one-way fare for BaltimoreLink local buses, Metro Subway, and Light Rail, your fare is automatically valid for 90 minutes. That's 90 minutes of FREE transfers across all MDOT MTA core services. Riders will be able to take a CityLink bus from Baltimore County to the Light Rail downtown and onto BWI Airport for one low fare. They'll be able to take Metro Subway to a station near the Inner Harbor and board the LocalLink 63 to the mammoth Tradepoint Atlantic complex in Sparrows Point. CharmPass better connects you and saves you money at the same time. It's a win-win!


Still going in to work five days a week? MDOT MTA weekly and monthly passes are a great value. But if you have a more flexible schedule now and use transit just a few days week, there’s CharmFlex. Available only on the CharmPass app, the CharmFlex 3-day and 10-day pass options let you choose when to ride, for about 15% less than the cost of a day-pass. Your CharmFlex fare is good for up to a year after purchase, so it’s easy to make sure you get every ride you paid for.
