TICKET VENDING MACHINES COMING TO MARC TRAIN STATIONS

 

 

Amtrak Quik-Trak Self Serve Ticketing Kiosks (SSTs) are currently being installed at most MARC train stations on the Brunswick, Camden, and Penn Lines.  Odenton, Camden, and Brunswick Stations will have SSTs installed, and will continue to be staffed.  Installation is expected to be completed by the end of March, with the exception of Odenton Station. 

 

Installation of the SSTs will provide increased access for ticket purchases during business hours, both morning and evening. 

 

AMTRAK Stations on the Penn Line (Penn Station, BWI Marshall Station, New Carrollton Station, and Union Station) will still have ticket agents as well as SSTs.  The Amtrak stations, as well as the remaining MARC stations, will continue to accept your Transit Benefits.

 

SSTs will accept debit and major credit cards only to purchase daily, weekly, or monthly tickets.  Cash or vouchers of any kind cannot be used.  For passengers who have SmartBenefits Vouchers, we recommend using Commuter Direct.com for electronic ticket purchases using the SmartBenefits program. Visit www.commuterdirect.com for more information about the SmartBenefits programs.

 

Following installation of the SSTs, ticket agents will be available for a limited time to answer questions and offer assistance if necessary.

Thank you for riding MARC Train Service.
