Charles Center station is a Baltimore Metro Subway station in Baltimore, Maryland. Located by the Charles Center in Downtown Baltimore, it is nearby various landmarks and bus transfers. It was the final stop of the line until 1995, when the extension to Johns Hopkins Hospital opened.

The Red Line, a proposed but not yet funded light rail line, would if built include an underground station here providing a transfer point to the currently existing Metro Subway system.[1] However, on June 25, 2015, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan declared that he would not provide state funds for the project, thus putting the Red Line in jeopardy.[2]
