Weekday commuters who take MARC Train Service to Washington D.C. have known for years what a great bargain it is. Compared to the hassle, expense and angst of driving, it’s not only easy on the wallet and purse, but a great stress reliever too. Starting December 7th, MARC Train Service on the Penn Line between Martin State Airport and D.C.’s Union Station will offer weekend travelers that same welcome combination.
Here at MTA social media HQ, we’ve been hearing for years how much that would mean to our customers. For Baltimore-area riders, weekend trips with the kids to visit some of the world’s most renowned monuments will suddenly become a whole lot easier. And Washington-area residents will have an opportunity to discover Baltimore’s treasure trove of offbeat museums (American Visionary Art Museum, anyone?), superb dining choices and maybe catch a glance at where “their” House of Cards is mostly filmed.
Service is limited to the Penn Line, so please plan accordingly. Fortunately, trains are scheduled to run regularly from morning ‘til night, so you’ll have lots of travel options.
Thanks for making public transportation a part of your life. We’ll continue to do our best to make it your first choice for getting around.
