City Schools Transportation Fund

Help your students take advantage of Baltimore’s cultural attractions and educational resources by applying for free or discounted transportation through the Visit Baltimore Training and Education Foundation.

This fund is available for teachers at any Baltimore City public or charter school. Each class is eligible for one trip funded by Visit Baltimore; some attractions may provide additional funding, based on the program and the grade level.

The following is a snapshot of the field trip programs available for each grade level. To apply for a transportation fund grant for your class, please apply here.

For Transportation Fund related questions, please contact Leticia Enos at 410-659-7093 or via email lenos@baltimore.org. The link to the application is here. (need hyperlink)
