Commuter Rail - MARC & VRE

The Washington, DC area has two commuter rail services: VRE - Virginia Railway Express and MARC - Maryland Area Regional Commuter. The combined average weekday ridership approaches 60,000 passengers; about 40,000 each day for MARC and more than 19,000 each day for VRE.

VRE provides service between Union Station in Washington, DC and stations in Virginia, along two lines, the Manassas Line and the Fredericksburg Line. VRE is a joint project of the Northern Virginia Transportation Commission (NVTC) and the Potomac and Rappahannock Transportation Commission (PRTC).

MARC provides service between Union Station in Washington, DC and stations in Maryland, along three lines, the Penn, Camden, and Brunswick Lines. MARC is operated by the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA), a division of the Maryland Department of Transportation. In addition to MARC, MTA also operates local bus, commuter bus, light rail, and subway services in Maryland.

SmartBenefits® and Commuter Rail

CommuterDirect.com offers a SmartBenefits personal account service.  VRE and MARC riders can apply their SmartBenefits to their CommuterDirect.com® account and purchase tickets and passes through CommuterDirect.com.® Customers can have tickets delivered to them, or pick up their tickets at any of the five locations of The Commuter Store.® More about SmarTrip and SmartBenefits.
