The Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Transit Administration (MDOT MTA) will begin transitioning from the service reductions first implemented March 17 under the COVID-19 health emergency to more normal transit schedules.

Beginning Monday, July 13, the following service will be in effect:

--MARC: Penn, Camden and Brunswick lines will operate regular scheduled service. A PDF copy of the Brunswick Line schedule is available at (the online trip planner will be updated closer to July 13). MARC Train has confirmed with Frederick TransIT that “Meet the MARC” shuttle service to and from Point of Rocks, which was partially restored on June 24, will also be fully restored on July 13. We have also confirmed with EPTA that connecting bus service to West Virginia stations from Trains 873 and 883 will resume July 13.

--Fare Collection: We encourage riders to utilize CharmPass for a contact-free payment option to further protect our customers and team members.

--Seating will not be restricted; riders can do their part by maintaining social distance where possible.

To continue to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, MDOT MTA reminds all riders that face coverings are required when riding transit.

MDOT MTA also will continue enhanced disinfecting procedures of all vehicles including high-passenger touchpoint areas.

A complete list of service changes is available at

To optimize the effectiveness of our efforts, we ask our riders to do their part as well by continuing to follow common-sense recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

--Practice social distancing whenever possible.

--Wash your hands as soon as possible after touching any surface that others do, and keep your hands away from your mouth, nose and eyes.

--Avoid contact with anyone who exhibits flu symptoms such as coughing, sneezing or difficulty breathing.

--Cough or sneeze into the crook of your arm instead of your hand, and if you use a tissue, throw it away immediately.

Thank you for riding MARC Train.
