    The Charm City Circulator is another free transportation option for students.

    The Maryland Transit Authority (MTA) also offers transportation by bus throughout the city for a fee. These buses require exact change in cash, so come prepared! If you are going to be using buses throughout the day, you can purchase a day bus pass at a discount. Most Johns Hopkins Students prefer to take the JHMI and Charm City Circulator listed above, but the MTA offers a larger network of bus stops and runs full time.
