Maryland Area Regional Commute (MARC), Penn Line
  • Overall, I would recommend riding the MARC train for a cheap and easy commute from Maryland to DC but I do wish they would expand their services to run on the weekend

      I have traveled on the Maryland Area Regional Commuter (MARC) train on the Penn Line. Usually I travel from Union Station in DC to BWI airport or to Penn station in Maryland. The MARC train is used by a lot of people as a commuter train which means it is really busy during typical business commuter times in the morning and in the afternoon. The last time I was on the train, there

      was not enough seats and I had to stand! Perhaps they need more services during the busy hours. The train is almost always on time and is really reliable if you need to get somewhere on time.

      One of the biggest downsides of the MARC train system is that since it is a commuter rail system, it does not run on the weekends. This is really difficult if you are flying into BWI airport on ...


      • a saturday or sunday and you want to take the MARC train. Although, you can always take the Amtrak option on the weekend but it is 3 times the price. The MARC train is only about $7 from DC to BWI and it is over $20 to take the amtrak train.

        Riding on the MARC train is really easy. You can buy a ticket at the kiosks at Union Station and it takes only

        a few minutes. The train is clearly marked and it is easy to make sure you are getting on the correct train. The train attendants have always been really nice and they seem like they really enjoy their jobs, which is nice. Overall, I would recommend riding the MARC train for a cheap and easy commute from Maryland to DC but I do wish they would expand their services to run on the weekend.
