Maryland to add MARC Camden Line service between Baltimore, D.C.
Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) and University of Maryland officials next week will mark the start of expanded train service on the MARC Camden Line between Baltimore and Washington, D.C.
The inaugural train from Washington's Union Station first will arrive in the morning March 9 at the College Park station and then travel to the Camden Station in Baltimore.
The additional service is being offered "in response to requests to handle increased ridership," MTA officials said in a press advisory.
The additional service will improve transportation connections between the University of Maryland's campuses at College Park and Baltimore, they said.
The travel connection improvements come at a time when the campuses are seeking ways to expand teaching and research projects as part of the MPowering State initiative to boost the university's economic impact on the state.
