Great news for Silver Spring MARC customers! The Commuter Store and CommuterDirect.com management team have assumed the operations of the Silver Spring TRiPS Commuter Store, located in the Paul Sarbanes Transit Center. This change now allows customers to purchase all MARC tickets -- including the 5 day weekly ticket and TLC cards -- conveniently 7 days per week. MTA Commuter Bus tickets are sold as well.
Store hours are Monday-Friday 6:00am to 6:00pm and Saturday/Sunday from 6:00am to 5:00pm. The store is located on Level 2 of the Sarbanes Transit center: exit the westbound MARC platform using the walkway that connects it to the Transit Center, turn right, and ride the escalator up one level to reach the store.
TRiPS accepts cash, all major credit cards, transit debit cards and Electronic SmartBenefits. New customers will need to visit www.commuterdirect.com to register to use SmartBenefits at the store. The Amtrak QuickTrack machine will remain at the station.
Thank you for riding MARC.
