People tend to check in during these times:
Let the Elderly and Women...kids, SIT! You'll still make it to your destination!! , )
Don't fret, you'll get a seat!
Stand on the right, walk on the left of escalators.
Expect Delays!!! ...like today, track maintenance... , )
Let the pregnant lady sit ....that would be such a good deed
Trygoing to the very first or very last car to get seats even during peak times.
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.
Stand right walk left on the escalator
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.
A glass of wine everyday is good for the blood stream....
A vendor in the nearby Amtrak station pops fresh popcorn in the afternoons. Good end to a busy day.
If your a slow mover stay to the right and make way for the cheetahs!
There are restrooms in the Amtrak terminal.
The line is LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONNGGGER than Longcat. Be prepared.
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
Prices for snacks in the vending machines have increased tremendously. Animal crackers jumped from $1 to $1.60!
Ride the 921 Bus from Annapolis to New Carrollton Station. http://www.facebook.com/youngtransportationservices
Try the chicken patties from the vendor in the amtrak side really good
Not a very entertaining train station bring a book.
What to say?! It's a metro station!!! I think it says at all!!!
It looks hot out. Stay inside the train.
Our headquarter is here
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.
Watch out if you need a cab and you're not from here. They think youre stupid. Had a cab take the long way to our hotel and cost over 10 bucks. The hotel is straight down one road. This was Sky Cab.
In the morning if you're moving like you have no place to be, stay to the right on the stairs and escalators!!!! Please :-)
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!
Don't be a D bag! Take the outside seat, u know the train fills up so don't get mad when people ask u to move.
Check out the second bench from the right. Best spot in town for a nap.
You can now pay for parking here with a credit card.
Don't get stabbed waiting for the MARC.
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're just going to Baltimore, think about taking the MARC. Less comfy at peak time, but cheaper.
Hope there is no delays!!!
read the fine print. add $1 to total cost when using a paper fare card!
Fastest way to get to irs
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.
One place, two stations!
Check weekend maintenance schedules before you ride!
Sit facing the direction the train goes.
If you run out of money on your card a lot of station attendants will let you out of the station free.
Ders a little cafe to buy stuff in the amtrax wating area
Amtrax stations only allow people bording their train to sit in the wating area even in the winter
Amtrak and marc train are easy accessible
the military discount on a ticket to nyc is a whopping 14 bucks. thanks, amtrak. haha...
The popcorn stand is intoxicating! Stock up before a long trip!
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.
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.
