Marc is not an option. First the short distance fares are too high, next no one is going to want to take the train for only 1 mile and then transfer at union station with its long portages. Finally and most importantly the PennLine Marc cant affort to stop. Stopping will cost it 3 minutes and for the thousands of daily commuters adding 3 minutes both ways to their travel time will drive them off.

What really needs to happen is either a street car or a new light rail needs to go out from Union station, hit NY ave and Bladensburg and then out the Camden Line Marc to college park metro where the purple line will also go. This will also service Riverdale marc and and North Brentwood.
