    You can park in the reserved spaces beginning at 10 am if / when the other parking spaces are filled. I called to verify this last week before doing so.

    If you're dropping someone off, please pull into one of the parking spaces meant for that. When you stop in the middle of the road to let someone and their six bags unload, you create a huge jam.

    Believe it or not, trains stop in the SAME spot @ EVERY station. So line up with a door from the previous train on the platform and get first dibs on the next!

    Prices for snacks in the vending machines have increased tremendously. Animal crackers jumped from $1 to $1.60!

    When you're coming back from the city, the blue and orange lines are services by one train until the transfer point- so don't fall asleep! It's very easy to misse the transfer.

    If you arrive between 8-9am park on the Rt. 50 side by Corporate Drive. On the 450 side the further back you park, it's likely your car may be broken into.

    A vendor in the nearby Amtrak station pops fresh popcorn in the afternoons. Good end to a busy day.

    This is one of the MD metrorail stations where you can catch or connect with Amtrak - short cheap and comfy trip to the BWI airport, Baltimore.

    The metro station and the Amtrak station are on the same site though their services are in separate areas, and the addresses are techically different.

    If you're just going to Baltimore, think about taking the MARC. Less comfy at peak time, but cheaper.

    This station services Metrobuses, Metrorail, Amtrak and Matc trains. However if you anticipate a long layover, or don't need to stop in MD, consider using Union Station instead.

    if you transfer here always plan for a late metro just in case. MARC trains will not wait. seems obvious but you would be suprised how many people miss trains because of the metro
