Construction work has begun on the new Camden Yards MARC Train Station. The new station, scheduled to be completed next summer, will feature an expanded waiting area, restrooms, new ticket vending machines, an MDOT MTA Police Force substation, as well as new service and informational displays.
MDOT MTA is proud to unveil CharmPass, our official mobile transit pass app. For the first time ever, you can pay for BaltimoreLink local buses (CityLink, LocalLink, and Express BusLink), Light RailLink, Metro SubwayLink, MARC Train, and Commuter Bus services directly from your smartphone. No more looking for loose change. You can now purchase and use your fare from the palm of your hand. Your fare will be exact every time.
Construction on the renovation of the BWI Rail Station waiting room and ticket office will begin on Monday, August 27, when a temporary facility will open just north of the existing building. This project will completely transform the station, expanding the waiting area and constructing new restrooms. Estimated completion is Late 2019. In addition, the walkway to the platforms closest to the ticket office will close.
The weather has briefly improved, but high waters and rain runoff continue to impact Penn Line trains departing Baltimore due to water accumulation in the tunnel between Penn Station and West Baltimore. While it is safe to operate trains through this area, trains must operate at reduced speeds.
Amtrak has notified MARC Train that the trackwork scheduled for the weekend of August 18-19 will not take place. Therefore, the regular weekend schedule will operate on both days. You may disregard the notice at the top of the Penn Line weekend schedule in the timetable.
We regret any inconvenience Brunswick Line passengers traveling to West Virginia experienced last night due to the termination of Trains 875, 879 and 881 and resulting lengthy delays. Around 6:30pm, a CSX freight train stopped between Harpers Ferry and Duffields with a mechanical problem. This would have ordinarily caused a 25-30 minute delay while the freight train’s conductor inspected the train and reconnected air hoses. However, as he walked the train the conductor found additional problems, as well as a track defect.
MARC Train will operate a regular weekday schedule on all three lines on Tuesday, June 12. The Washington Capitals' Stanley Cup Parade will begin at 11:00am in downtown Washington, DC. There will be **limited** additional capacity provided on southbound Penn Line Train 423 (departing Baltimore at 9:00am) and northbound Penn Line Trains 422 and 424 (1:20pm and 2:20pm departures from Union Station). Brunswick and Camden Line trains will operate with their regular number of railcars.
