MARC Expansion – “Let’s Get to Work”
Launched in January, 2012, Let’s Get to Work focuses on the MARC Commuter Rail system as the best opportunity to make tangible progress toward a better regional system in three to 5 years. MARC stations are close to dense and growing employment hubs, particularly along the Baltimore/DC corridor. By expanding MARC service and improving rider experience, we can reinforce the growth of these existing, dense employment clusters and provide better access to economic opportunity. In 2014 we will use the momentum from the popularity of the launch of weekend service and the recommendations from our The Last Mile project to push for other improvements including more runs in the evenings, better connecting bus service at stations, and improved options for reaching employment centers.
