Transportation to and from campus is an important consideration when choosing where to live in Baltimore. Students who do not wish to bring a car to campus may use shuttle services provided by Johns Hopkins or use the Maryland Transit Association (MTA). MTA services include the Light RailLink, Local Bus Service and Metro SubwayLink which connects students throughout the Baltimore metro area to the East Baltimore Campus, where the School is located. Student parking is also available for those who choose to park near the East Baltimore Campus.

The Homewood-Peabody-JHMI Shuttle, fondly called the JHMI (pronounced Jimmy) shuttle, is a free shuttle for students, faculty and staff. For those who live in Charles Village and Mount Vernon, or commuters traveling to and from DC via Penn Station, find the JHMI a great option. The online map shows all the stops, as well as a time table.JHMI Shuttle

For students wishing to live in Patterson Park or Butcher Hill neighborhoods, the Route #3 Shuttle travels from JHSPH to the northwest corner of Patterson Park. This shuttle has limited hours, running Monday – Friday from 6:00 a.m. – 9:45 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. – 5:45 p.m. However, there is also an After Hours Shuttle (Route #7) that runs from 6:00 p.m. – 12:45 a.m. throughout the East Baltimore area, including the western and northern edge of Paterson Park. It will take students wherever they need to go within the highlighted areas on the map.

Students may also park at a discounted rate in the Church Home Garage between Broadway and Caroline Streets or the Ashland Garage on the corner of Ashland Avenue and N. Washington Street. To receive the discounted rate, students should come to the Student Affairs Suite, E1002 in the Wolfe Street building, to purchase parking passes. Parking registration can also be completed during New Student Orientation.

Washington MonumentThe Mount Vernon neighborhood is a popular area for many students. A short distance from the Bloomberg School of Public Health, Mount Vernon is an easy shuttle ride from campus.

The neighborhood is also home to the original Washington Monument and many other historical gems. The neighborhood association has prevented high-rises, keeping the historic architecture central to new projects. A former Mount Vernon mansion was renovated into the Ivy Hotel and a firehouse was transformed into a brewery and pub. On the arts and culture side, Mount Vernon is home to the Walters Art Museum, the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, the Center Stage Theatre and the Peabody Institute.

Recently, the New York Times featured Mount Vernon for its successful revitalization and the neighborhood’s residents’ determination to improve the prospects of their home. Get to know Mount Vernon by reading their article or the neighborhood’s conservancy webpage, Mount Vernon Place.
