My buddy is catching a train from NY to Penn Station in Baltimore...and I was wondering if there was a subway station nearby.

If so, what is it? Is it within walking distance? how long would it take to walk from Penn Station to that subway?

At Penn Station, these are your options:
There is a light rail stop right in the station. You can take that light rail to the UofB stop and walk 2 blocks to the State Center station of the metro. Or, you could get off the Lexingtion Mkt. stop and walk a block to the Lexington Mkt. station of the metro. There are also Marc trains that enter Penn Station for DC and suburban drops.

Ooh... But you can't, like, walk to the station? If you could, how long would it take?

Ugh...Baltimore's subway system is so limited it's pathetic. I wouldn't mind moving there, but the terrible lack of traffic-independent public transit makes it not really worth it, because driving in the city means stopping at an effing stoplight every...single...block.

It takes about 7 minutes to walk to State Center and about 3 minutes to walk to Lexington. Baltimore's transit options are not good. But they are still better than most other cities. Our country is sadly not one for mass transit.

I think it would take more like 20 minutes to walk to Lexington Market. Probably about 10 to State Center.

From the light rail stop, it is only about 3-5 minutes to the metro stop at Lexington Market.

Alright, so, just to clarify, if I walked from the Penn Station trains to State Center subway station...it would only take about 10 mins?

Any particular direction on where to walk? Keep straight, go north, etc? Or do I just, like, follow the signs or something?

hehehe---ok--let me see if i can simplify this one.
1. You do not have to walk from the Penn Station to State Center. When you get off your train, on the first level, there is a connection for the light rail. You take the light rail to the Mt. Royal/UofB stop and walk west about two blocks to the State Center metro stop. Or. you could walk it from Penn Station and that would be about 10 or so minutes. Your other option would be to stay on the light rail until you get to the Lexington Market stop, get off and walk a up a block to the metro stop. That is a quicker walk. I guess it also depends on your final destination. The metro runs from Owings Mills which is in the northwestern suburbs to the medical center at Hopkins on the southeast side of the city.

I think there are few, if any, signs. You'd basically want to walk south on Charles or St. Paul St., then make a right on Chase. As you cross Howard St., Chase turns into MLK (you'll pass the light rail, which is not the same as the metro). Go one block on MLK and make a right on Eutaw and you should see it.

It may be easier to go to Google maps and look up Penn Station. You'll see the metro station a few blocks to the southwest. It should be about 10 blocks total.
