Home / MARC Comparative Analysis (2018)
- January 31, 2023
The Maryland Area Regional Commuter (MARC) train serves West Virginia weekdays at three stations. Concerns over continued funding sources for existing services led HEPMPO to work with their consultants to develop a comparative evaluation in terms of organization, ridership, structure and agreements of peer regional rail commuter systems that cross state lines. Six peer systems were reviewed and perceived advantages and disadvantages of the multi-jurisdictional arrangements were documented. The results include general observations and considerations specific to MARC’s system.
