Changes to MARC Station Hours

Starting Monday, Camden Station on the Camden Line and Aberdeen Station on the Penn Line will be closed midday. Since most trains don't stop at either stations during the middle of the day, it makes sense to close them down as a cost cutting measure when riders wont be there. Camden Station will be closed from 8:30am till 3:00pm and Aberdeen from 9:30am till 2:30pm. Unfortunately, during this time riders won't have access to the Self Service Ticket kiosks. This means if anyone wants to buy a ticket for the 3:30pm Camden Line train to D.C. they have 30 minutes to do so, and that's if the station is reopened right at 3pm. The TVMS for the light rail at Camden Station will still be accessible.

In the continued effort for cost cutting will this be a continued trend? If so, I think it would be prutend to make sure the SST kiosks are accessible when the stations are not staffed.
