Maryland has canceled the bidding on a contract to take over the operations of the MARC Camden and Brunswick lines from CSX, saying its bid solicitation had failed to generate sufficient competition for the work. "We were not happy with the competition or lack of competition," said state Transportation Secretary Beverley K. Swaim-Staley. Swaim-Staley said the Maryland Transit Administration would revise its request for proposals in an effort to make it more attractive for bidders.

The Transportation Infrastructure Investment Act of 2013 will provide crucially needed funding for improving, expanding and building transportation projects throughout Maryland. Projects critical to continued economic growth throughout Central Maryland - such as the Red Line in Baltimore, the Purple Line in Prince George's and Montgomery counties, highway projects in Harford and Howard counties, and expansion of the MARC commuter rail service - can now move forward. The dedication of $100 million to the MARC system to fund weekend service on the Penn Line, add two more trains on the Camden Line during weekday hours, and purchase new locomotives is a major step forward in creating a regional rail system that both supports and is a catalyst for economic development.

In a setback to its ambitious effort to expand the MARC commuter train service, the Maryland Transit Administration has dropped plans to add weekend service to its Penn Line or midday runs to its Camden Line this summer. MTA Administrator Paul J. Wiedefeld said last week that the agency has so far been unable to reach agreements with Amtrak or CSX, which own the two lines, on opening up slots in their schedules for the added service. In September, Wiedefeld unveiled a sweeping 28-year plan to triple capacity on MARC, a system whose growing popularity has led to severe crowding.
