MDOT MTA Introduces CharmPass, Your Mobile Transit Pass App

MDOT MTA is proud to unveil CharmPass, our official mobile transit pass app. For the first time ever, you can pay for BaltimoreLink local buses (CityLink, LocalLink, and Express BusLink), Light RailLink, Metro SubwayLink, MARC Train, and Commuter Bus services directly from your smartphone. No more looking for loose change. You can now purchase and use your fare from the palm of your hand. Your fare will be exact every time.

And the best part? The 90-minute FREE transfer window on MDOT MTA core services. Riders using CharmPass now can transfer between the Local Bus, Metro SubwayLink and Light RailLink systems when traveling within a span of 90 minutes without any additional cost.

Riders who require or are eligible for a senior, disability, or other reduced fares will be also able to utilize their reduced fare ID in the CharmPass app to purchase applicable reduced fare products after pre-registration (see link below).

Riders utilizing SmartBenefits will also enjoy the ability to integrate their SmartBenefits with CharmPass later this year.

Get Mobile. Go Faster. Transfer Free. Download CharmPass today for your Android or Apple device.
