Save West Virginia MARC Service
0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!
In 2012, Maryland and West Virginia reached an agreement to continue MARC commuter train service to West Virginia stations—Harpers Ferry, Duffields, and Martinsburg—for five years. That agreement expired in October 2017. If new terms are not reached in the coming weeks, service could end as soon as July 2018.
Currently, MARC riders in West Virginia pay a surcharge of $2 per trip or $80 per month, which provides the state of Maryland with annual revenue of approximately $400,000. The total cost of West Virginia service has been estimated between $1.3 and $3.2 million per year.
Help us save this public transportation service, which is an important asset to the Eastern Panhandle.
Please sign this petition to let West Virginia public officials know we urge them to support a financial contribution from the state of West Virginia as part of a long-term funding agreement with Maryland.
