For reasons involving my wife's employment, I found myself this morning on the 6:30 a.m. MARC Penn Line train out of Perryville, bound for Baltimore. It might be routine for some commuters, but it was a new experience for this Howard County auto commuter.
All in all, it was not at all a bad way to go, and with a connection on the No. 64 bus, I was at work in an hour and a quarter. There's no crowding on the stretch northeast of Baltimore, so it was quite comfortable.
I do have one question for the MTA, however. Why just one ticket machine in the Perryville station? The lines do stack a bit up there, and it seems foolish not to have some redundancy to deal with the inevitable glitches.
See you there again Tuesday.
