MARC sets meetings on new schedule

By Washington Post Editors

The Maryland Transit Administration will begin holding meetings with train commuters next week to discuss upcoming changes to schedule for the Penn Line.

The changes to the Maryland Area Regional Commuter (MARC) service, which are scheduled to take place March 14, will add more frequent trains with fewer cars during peak periods. MARC's Penn Line primarily operates between Union Station and Baltimore's Penn Station, although some trains run to Perryville.

The "Meet the Management" sessions will allow commuters to discuss the changes with officials and ask questions about the service adjustments.

The following meetings have been scheduled:

-- Feb. 28: Martin Airport, 5:15 to 7:30 p.m.; Edgewood, 5:30 to 7:45 p.m.
-- March 1: New Carrollton, 3:30 to 7:15 p.m.; Perryville, 5:45 to 8:15 p.m.
-- March 2: Halethorpe, 3:50 to 7:30 p.m.; Aberdeen, 5:30 to 8 p.m.
-- March 3: Union Station, 3:15 to 6:45 p.m.; BWI Rail Station, 3:30 to 7:30 p.m.
-- March 7: Penn Station, 3:30 to 7:30 p.m.; Seabrook, 3:30 to 7 p.m.
-- March 8: West Baltimore, 3:45 to 7:30 p.m.
-- March 9: Bowie State, 3:30 p.m. until 7:15 p.m.; Odenton, 3:45 to 7:15 p.m.
-- March 10: Union Station, 3:15 to 6:45 p.m.
