Public Hearings to Be Held On MARC, Commuter Bus Cuts/
Post, 18 Oct 2008 (Shaver).
Maryland transit officials have scheduled public hearings for next month to solicit comments about proposed cuts, stemming from the state's budget crunch, to some MARC and Maryland commuter bus services.
The reductions, most of which would take effect Jan. 12, would include some commuter bus services between Annapolis and the New Carrollton Metrorail station, Waldorf and the Suitland Metrorail station, and Union Station and Columbia. MARC cuts would include the last two evening round-trip trains on the Penn Line and all Monday-through-Thursday service on Brunswick Line train 871. Brunswick Line train 883 would terminate at Brunswick, Maryland Transit Administration officials said.
More details about the proposed cuts and the hearing dates and locations are available at MTAMaryland.com, under "News Center." Comments, which must be received by Dec. 26, may also be mailed to: Glenn Litsinger, MTA Office of Customer Information, 6 St. Paul St., Baltimore, Md. 21202.
