If you've been looking for a good excuse to take mass transit to downtown -- and check out the new Charm City Circulator while you're in the city -- this would be the weekend.

Downtown traffic could be tied up much of the weekend for the NCAA lacross championships taking place at the Ravens' stadium Saturday through Monday. The city is warning motorists to expect delays and unusual traffic patterns. Lacrosse fans are being urged to use commercial parking lots because neighborhood parking restrictions will be in force.

Transportation officials are suggesting that downtown visitors take the light rail, bus system or Metro subway to get to the central city. From there, visitors can get around town by taking water taxis or the free Charm City Circulator, which runs from Harbor East to the Hollins Market along Pratt and Lombard streets.
