MARC Transit Link Card

For only $80 more than the cost of your MARC monthly ticket, you can purchase a MARC Transit Link Card (TLC) and have unlimited monthly use of the Washington Metrorail system including weekend travel.  MARC Train operates Monday through Friday ONLY. 

Your MARC TLC is also valid for the base fare on WMATA’s Metrobuses in Maryland, the District of Columbia, and Northern Virginia. 

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, Neighborhood Shuttles.

MARC TLC tickets are offered through www.CommuterDirect.com or may be purchased at  one of the four Commuter Stores in Virginia. 

FREE PARKING!!  MARC monthly and  TLC holders whose trip originates from BWI Rail Station only AND participate in the Commuter Direct Ticket-by-Mail Program may take advantage of free parking at the MARC BWI Rail Station Parking garage operated by Parking Management, Inc. (PMI).   You MUST contact  the PMI Parking Garage at BWI Rail Station for the parking pass application prior to your first day of travel.  Passes are NOT distributed on the same day you fill out the application.   There will be a refundable deposit of $20.00 upon receipt of the parking pass.
