A weekend trip into Charm City just got much easier.
Getting to Baltimore on a weekend just got a little easier. For $7, you can now hop on a MARC train on the weekend, after the state invested $46 million into weekend train service.
Robert Smith, who is with the Maryland Transit Administration, says it was a smart investment.
"This is an opportunity for us to make a difference in reducing traffic on I-95, reducing emissions and air pollution and frankly making our area much more livable," Smith says.
Maryland's Deputy Transportation Secretary Wilson Perry is hoping the new service will increase tourism for both Washington and Baltimore.
"Thanks to MARC weekend service, the distance between two great cities just got a little shorter and our world got a little more interesting," Perry says.
A weekend train ticket to BWI Airport is $6.
