The Maryland Department of Transportation will run on a special schedule on January 20th for the Presidential Inauguration.
Trains will run into Washington D.C. in the morning only and will depart D.C. in the evening only. There will also not be any regular weekday schedules or Camden Line service that Friday.
MTA is also selling special MARC Train tickets for the inauguration.
The deadline to order tickets online is January 10th. The tickets people purchase online are not E-tickets. Customers will receive the tickets in the mail.
Day Pass tickets can also be purchased in person at Odenton and Frederick stations up to Inauguration Day, if there are still tickets available.
MARC weekly and month multi-ride tickets will be honored on Inauguration Day.
