Transit commuters should find today's trip easier than yesterday's, as Metro and MARC add service.
MARC announced that the Brunswick Line is back. Commuter trains between Western Maryland and Union Station were canceled yesterday because the Red Line crash blocked its tracks between Takoma and Fort Totten.
Metro is adding buses to get people in and out of the Silver Spring area. That includes more service on the Metro Extra (79) express and the 70 and 71 buses on Georgia Avenue and the S9 express on 16th Street NW. A free shuttle will be added today to connect Silver Spring and the Green Line's Georgia Avenue/Petworth Station.
