Subway Train between Baltimore & DC

Can anyone tell me if there is a subway/metro train that goes from Whitemarsh to Washington, DC? We're staying in Whitemarsh but are thinking about taking a side trip to the zoo in Washington DC to see the pandas before a Sox game. If so, how long does it take to get there? How about station parking?. Thanks for your responses.

White Marsh is over 50 miles from the National Zoo in Washington.

You can drive it if you really want to get to there, but definitely wait until after rush hour.

From White Marsh to the zoo would probably take you close to 90 minutes. Doing it during rush hour might run you 2 hours.

No subway, but If you're doing this during the week and can drive and park yourself downtown, MARC runs commuter train service to DC from Camden Station (next to the ballpark). The trains are inexpensive and from that station run only during morning and evening rush hours, which would accomodate a weekday return trip for a night game. The trip to Washington's Union Station takes around an hour, and from there it's perhaps a 10-minute subway ride to the zoo.

At other times during the week, more frequent service runs on MARC's Penn Line between Penn Station (Baltimore) and Union.

Amtrak runs all week long between Penn and Union daily, which would cover you on the weekend.
