Amtrak apologizes to MARC riders

MARC passengers have two opportunities today to meet with Maryland transportation officials.

The MARC Riders Advisory Council will hold a special meeting at 4 p.m. Wednesday "to specifically address the recent service disruptions on the Penn Line." Maryland Transportation Secretary Beverley K. Swaim-Staley is scheduled to speak to the council about the recent problems and the investigation. Maryland Transit Administration chief Ralign T. Wells is also scheduled to be present at the meeting in Room 337 of the Hall of the States Building, 400 N. Capitol St., near Union Station.

Following the Riders Advisory Council meeting, Amtrak CEO Joseph H. Boardman will join Wells and Swaim-Staley for a special session of "Meet the MARC Managers" at Union Station from 4:30 until 6:30 p.m., according to the MTA.
