Getting to Camden Yards from DC on a Sunday

Good morning everyone!

I was wondering if anyone lately had gotten to Camden Yards from DC using public transportation on a Sunday.

I read on Trip Advisor that there's a bus (Route 703) that runs from Greenbelt to the park on the weekends; however, I can't confirm that on the MTA site. If anyone has done it (or anything else) lately, and can let me know, I would appreciate it!

Many thanks.

Call 1-866-RIDE-MTA for current info about MARC bus service from Greenbelt (if any).

The main thing is to get to somewhere where you can pick up the Baltimore light rail. That means either taking Amtrak to Baltimore Penn Station or taking the metrobus from Greenbelt to BWI.

From what I have heard from friends, the Maryland Transit game day bus is very unreliable.

What I would recommend doing is taking the Green Line train to Greenbelt and then switching to the B30 BWI Airport bus. After it drops off at the airport, it stops at the BWI light rail station. Hop on light rail and take it to the Camden Yards stop.

Your o/w cost per person is:

MetroRail Fare: varies based on where you board ~$2-3
B30 MetroBus Fare: $6
Baltimore Light Rail: $1.60


As other posters have mentioned, driving is a much better option. If you are going with another person or two it is probably the same price or cheaper to rent a car.
