The MARC Brunswick Line schedule change is effective July 16, 2012.

A new schedule for the MARC Brunswick Line begins this morning. The first train to depart Brunswick now leaves at 4:50 a.m., while the first train out of Frederick departs at 5 a.m. Both of the adjusted times are 10 minutes earlier than previous schedules.

In addition, several trains have added or removed stops, and that's expected to alter their arrival time in D.C.

This afternoon, some trains slated to leave the District before 5 p.m. will leave earlier than previously scheduled, while some later trains will reportedly leave 10 to 20 minutes later than previously scheduled.

Officials say this is the first major modification in the Brunswick Line in over 10 years. A full list of schedule changes can be found on the Maryland Transit Administration's website.
