Full MARC, MTA service Fri.
All MARC trains will operate on their regular schedules Friday, as will the MTA Commuter Bus, the Maryland Transit Administration said Thursday.
MARC train service was disrupted on the Brunswick and Camden Lines today due to
conditions following Wednesday's severe winter weather. MARC's Penn Line also operated on a reduced "S" schedule due to the storm, the MTA said.
Major roadways and Commuter Bus parking lots have now been cleared of snow and ice, allowing a safe resumption of full service for Commuter Bus routes tomorrow morning, it MTA said.
"We are keenly aware how much our customers depend on these services, and MTA crews
worked around the clock to be ready to resume service when conditions allowed," MTA
Administrator Ralign T. Wells said in a statement. "We appreciate the patience of our riders."
Wednesday night: MARC Train 883 on the Brunswick Line was stopped west of Kensington due to power lines on the tracks. The train has reversed to Silver Spring. Officials said the train will wait at Silver Spring for repairs for about an hour. If repairs are not completed, the train will return to Washington and passengers will be accommodated in a hotel.
