Transit advocates are looking for funding to extend MARC line hours during the week and add service on weekends.
Maryland is considering a 10-cent increase in its gasoline tax, and the group Action Committe for Transit from Montgomery County wants that money to go toward beefing up the MARC commuter train service.
Currently, MARC trains only run on weekdays. They go into D.C. in the morning and out to Frederick County in the afternoon.
The Action Committee says money from a higher gas tax could allow MARC trains to run between Frederick and the District all day long, and on weekends too.
MARC already has a long-term plan to accomplish this by 2035, but as of right now that plan is unfunded.
