Ten commuter wagons have been leased by NJ Transit to help with summer service. The lease agreement was one of several short-term fixes proposed by Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy to address overcrowding and poor on-time performance at NJ Transit, the nation's third-largest transit system, which serves New Jersey and parts of New York and Pennsylvania.

WASHINGTON — Tuesday night’s severe weather and flooding conditions have disrupted MARC train service for Wednesday morning.

Brunswick Line service is suspended Wednesday due to damage to the train tracks between Brunswick and Germantown and between Monocacy and Point of Rocks on the Frederick Branch, MDOT MTA said in a news release early Wednesday morning.

MARC riders wishing to use the Metrorail as an alternative can show their tickets to a Metrorail station manager.

Metro parking charges still apply.

Service on the Brunswick Line should be fully restored for Thursday, MDOT MTA said.
