The trains will run between Union Station in Washington and Penn Station in Baltimore.

There will be nine round trips on Saturdays, departing from Penn Station between 7:35 a.m. and 9:15 p.m. Departures from Union Station run from 9:02 a.m. to 10:35 p.m.

The six Sunday trips leave Penn Station between 9:15 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Trips leave Union Station between 10:40 a.m. and 7 p.m.

A one-way fare, Baltimore to Washington, is $7; the one-way ticket price from from BWI to Washington is $6. Monthly and weekly passes are good on the weekends.

Trains will stop at Martin State Airport, Penn Station, West Baltimore, Halethorpe, BWI, Odenton, Bowie, New Carrollton and Union Station.
