State Center / Cultural Center station is a Metro SubwayLink station in Baltimore, Maryland. It is the tenth most northern and western station on the line, the first one in the area viewed by many as "downtown Baltimore," and is within a close walk of the Cultural Center / State Center station on the Baltimore Light Rail, and many area landmarks. Several Maryland Transit Administration bus lines operate nearby or lay over at the location, including:

The stop's lone entrance is located directly adjacent to the Maryland States Office Complex, hence the name "State Center." It is the location of a future transit-oriented development.
