When the bands have played their last set, and the winning horse is crowned, exiting Pimlico may get tricky. For optimal pickups, reference the map below.

For the shortest ETAs move your pickup pin to:

  • Pimlico Road past W Northern Parkway
  • The corner of W Belvedere Ave and Pimlico Road
  • The intersection of Park Heights Ave and W Belvedere Ave


Whether you’re traveling to Preakness with friends or meeting new ones in the infield, everyone’s a winner when you fare split!
