MARC  Ticket by Mail/Transit Link Card

Commuter Direct Ticket by Mail.



For only $80.00 more than the cost of your MARC monthly ticket, you can buy a MARC Transit Link Card (TLC) and have unlimited monthly use of the Washington Metrorail system including weekend travel.


As with any MARC Train monthly ticket, you can use your TLC to ride Montgomery County RIDE ON buses and Maryland MTA Local Buses, Light Rail, Metro Subway, and Neighborhood Shuttles.


Your TLC is also valid for the base fare on WMATA’s Metrobuses in Maryland, the District of Columbia, and Northern Virginia.  TLC Cards may be purchased only through the Commuter Direct Ticket-by-Mail Program or from one of the Northern Virginia Commuter Stores.
