The MARC Train Service is a commuter rail line that serves to transport individuals in the areas in and around Maryland and Washington, D.C. The service operates only during the weekdays, though as of 2015 the Penn Line offers weekend service.

MARC does alter its normal schedule on some holidays, and the updated holiday schedule is available through the Maryland state government website, maryland.gov.

Tickets for the MARC Train Service are available from a variety of physical vendors as well as the Internet. Paper tickets are available both through ticket vendors and through ticket machines that are available in many stations on the MARC rail line. Detailed schedules of arrival and departure times for specific starting and destination points are available using the online fare information search tool on maryland.gov.

Riders may purchase fares for the MARC Train Service in one-way, weekly and monthly quantities. These fares also provide travel on select AMTRAK trains and many Metro bus lines in Maryland and Washington, D.C.
