MARC Accessibility General Information

Bridge Plates

Bridge plates are located on each rail car. Their purpose is to eliminate the gap between the platform and the rail car, making it easier for a wheelchair user or a person with a mobility device to enter and exit the train safely.


Penn Station, BWI Marshall Station, and New Carrollton Station on the Penn Line have elevators. Rockville and Silver Spring Stations on the Brunswick Line also have elevators. In the event an elevator is out of service, information will be posted on the MARC Service Updates page or sent as an email/RSS alert. Sign up for email or text message alerts for service changes, information, or out of service elevators.

Priority Seating

Priority seating for people with disabilities and senior citizens is located on some of MARC’s rail cars, adjacent to the doors; primarily the bi-levels.

Service Animals

MTA welcomes service animals on all of our service.

Tactile Warning Strips

There are bumpy tiles near the edge of the platform to alert commuters who are blind or have low vision that they are nearing the edge of the platform. Please stand behind the tactile warning strip to ensure that you will be out of danger from the approaching train.

Ticket Vending Machines

Some stations have Ticket Vending Machines. Each ticket machine has Braille and raised letter instructions. Audio instructions can also be obtained; commuter must provide own headset.

Wheelchair Users

A common wheelchair as defined in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is one that does not exceed 30 inches in width and 48 inches in length (when measured 2 inches from the ground) and does not exceed 600 pounds when occupied. Under the ADA, public transportation providers are not mandated to accommodate mobility devices falling outside of these specifications on a fixed route.
