Maryland Transit Administration to expand nighttime MARC service

On Feb. 11, the Maryland Transit Administration will expand service on the MARC Penn Line. The expansion is the first installment of the MARC Growth and Investment Plan, a multi-phased, multi-year program designed to triple capacity of the commuter-rail system.

The agency plans to add a northbound train leaving Washington, D.C., at 5:10 p.m. and arriving at Baltimore’s Penn Station at 6:01 p.m.; a southbound train leaving Penn Station at 10:30 p.m. and arriving in Washington at 11:30 p.m.; and a northbound train leaving Washington, D.C. at 11:45 p.m. and arriving at Penn Station at 12:40 a.m.

The state of Maryland will provide $6 million to cover the service expansion costs.
