During the race, Baltimore City Department of Transportation (BCDOT) will implement numerous street closures. MDOT MTA local bus service will detour around these closures. Riders should plan for extra travel time and take note of where detours begin and end on their route as many stops will be inaccessible due to the road closures. Detours are expected to be in place from 1:00pm to 6:00pm.

Riders are encouraged to use the Transit app to plan your trip during these disruptions. Detours and stop closures will be reflected in the app, making it your best source for getting around Baltimore during the event. Click here to learn more and download the app.
