Effective January 1, 2014, the maximum Federal transit allowance will drop from $245 to $130. MARC Train and Commuter Bus passengers will need to adjust their allocations with Commuter Direct and, if necessary, update their second form of payment in order to receive their ticket(s).
If Commuter Direct does not receive full payment for your ticket--Smart Benefits, credit card, cash, or check--they will not issue your January ticket(s).
In the event that the United States Congress takes action to maintain the $245 benefit level, we will let you know.
Thank you for riding the MARC Train and Commuter Bus Service.
