Delays and detours affect MARC and MTA services

Big delays for MARC passengers for the remainder of the morning, according to the Maryland Transit Administration. Trains in both directions on the MARC Camden Line are going to be running between 30 and 60 minutes late. This is due to freight train and MARC train congestion, as well as switch problems between the Greenelt and Riverdale stations caused by ice and snow. But Metro will honor tickets on the green line.

7:10 A.M. UPDATE:
Here's an updated set of changes for Maryland Transit Administration local buses:

-- #14 Line bypassing Anne Arundel County Community College.
-- #15 Line bypassing Windsor Hills, Using Garrison to Forest Park in both directions.
-- #16 Line bypassing Violetville.
-- #23 Line by passing Wild Wood Parkway..
-- #35 Line bypassing Desota Road, will stay on Wilkens Avenue.
-- #51 Line bypassing West Port Light Rail Station.

Virginia Railway Express officials said the service is running a normal schedule Wednesday.
VRE officials said station crews worked through the night to keep parking lots and platforms clear of snow and ice, but riders should use caution in these areas.

MTA bus and MARC commuter train services indicate those services are running normally, too.
