the point depends, in part, on the prospective TOD - if its mostly residential, you need access to employment centers in DC. If its office use, access for commuters from Maryland is worthwhile, and MARC could provide that. The value of a MARC station increases if and when MARC increases in frequency (including weekend service) and run through service to NoVa.

In either case, MARC service serves as "symbolic" of commitment to transit and TOD (as streetcars are sometimes aid to do).

I assume you would do both the MARC station and improved bus service.
