Public Transportation Directions

The nearest Metro station is College Park-University of Maryland on the Green Line. We do not recommend walking from the Metro station because the route is not pedestrian friendly. Instead, use one of the following methods:

  • Taxicab: Find a taxicab by the Metro parking garage near the bus stop. After the performance, you may ask a House Manager to call a taxicab to take you back to the Metro station.
  • UMD Bus 104: The university provides a free shuttle service (UM 104) from the Metro station to Regents Drive Garage, which is about a half-mile walk from The Clarice. Please check the UM 104 schedule carefully when planning your trip. (Note: Starting May 23, 2016, UM 104 is piloting a new route, with the most significant change being that it picks up on the west side of the College Park Metro station.)
  • UMD Nite Ride: Nite Ride operates seven nights a week from 5:30PM – 7:30AM, providing free curb-to-curb service to and from the Metro station and The Clarice between the hours of 2:30AM – 7:30PM. For service please call 301.314.NITE (6483).

Please review Metro's website for schedules, service maps, service statuses and alerts.
