As MDOT MTA works to meet budgetary constraints amid the fiscal impact of COVID-19, the agency will continue to prioritize transit service for core riders, especially transit dependent households. Effective November 2, MDOT MTA will resume the following service levels, which were in place earlier during the COVID-19 health emergency:
MARC Train will operate on an enhanced R service schedule service. For Penn Line passengers, only trains with an R under the train number in the timetable will operate. Some trains make additional stops as noted with an R in lieu of a train time in the timetable. There is one error in the September 8 Penn Line timetable -- Train 440 (5:25pm departure from Union Station) is an R schedule train and will operate. In addition, the following four trains will operate in addition to the R schedule:
Train 403 (4:45am departure from Penn Station)
Train 502 (6:10am departure from Washington)
Train 453 (9:35pm departure from Penn Station)
Train 452 (10:55pm departure from Washington)
This plan allows MDOT MTA more flexibility to respond to changes in transit demand as Marylandâ€™s economy recovers. Riders needing more information can visit mta.maryland.gov/coronavirus or call the Transit Information Contact Center at 410.539.5000.
Thank you for riding MDOT MTA.
