MARC can't get the story straight
Tim Manicom of Baltimore noticed that the information he's getting from one MTA web site is entirely different from the information on another. People going to one web site are told MARC is on time; those who visit the other learn that trains on the Penn Line are running as much as 80 minutes late.
"Obviously one hand isn’t communicating with the other," Maricom notes. (His statement checks out for accuracy now, but by the time you read this, the information may have changed.)
This is a serious screw-up. There are many things that occur on the MARC lines that are beyond the MTA's control. CSX and Amtrak own the tracks, operate the trains and do the dispatching. But communicating accurately with riders is the MTA's responsibility. The MTA's spokesmen weren't available when I called a few minutes ago.
