I will be commuting to Johns Hopkins from probably college park MARC station. I am worried because I heard Baltimore is crime ridden and I am a single female in my mid20s. I would strongly prefer to take the train into work each day but if it isn't safe. I will just drive to Johns Hopkins. Let me know! Thanks.

Yes it is safe. It's a commuter train.

Default Not only is it safe...

It should be pretty convenient, if you pay attention to the timing. Come in to Penn Station and catch the (free) JHU shuttle to whichever campus you are heading to.
I use Marc & the shuttle all the time.

The only catch is that the College Park Marc train takes you to the Camden Station which is a little far from Hopkins. Not sure if the shuttle goes to the Camden station. If you can take the Penn line, it would be easier.

Marc is perfectly safe. I've been taking it for almost 4 years.

The OP can take the MARC train from College Park to Camden Station and then transfer to the light rail which will take her Penn Station. But of Johns Hopkins Hospital is the final destination, then the OP could easily walk from Camden Station to Hopkins Plaza where the Baltimore Metro stops at Charles Center and goes to the hospital.

Which Hopkins? You can take the MARC to Penn Station and take the shuttle from there. It's relatively safe, and you'll have lots of company. There aren't problems like muggings, or purse snatching or drivebys. There are many other students and workers at the same shuttle and bus stops as well as the railway police and a very busy cab stand. There's a new cafe across the street in the railway lofts, too It's called Cafe Mocha and their pastries and sandwiches are delicious. I also like the little cafe inside penn station.
