Introducing the new MARC Ticket Vending Machines

In stations July 2018

  • Faster, with Apple Pay® and Google Pay, plus credit and debit options
  • More convenient, with transit subsidy and benefit programs accepted
  • More reliable, with state-of-the-art security features
  • More accepting, with cash payment option at select locations
  • More flexible, with the option to purchase tickets from any MARC Train origin to any MARC Train destination, and to purchase MDOT MTA Commuter Bus tickets too!

Discount Fare Options, Commuter Bus Tickets Too!

**Two Important Notes!!!** 

There are two important differences between the Amtrak QuickTrack machines and the new MARC TVM’s:

  • DO NOT insert your credit card to start using the machine. Press anywhere on the touch screen to begin your transaction.
  • When prompted, insert BUT DO NOT REMOVE your credit card. The new machines have a chip reader. Remove your credit card when you are instructed on the pin pad screen.
