Late trains and poor service all for the low low price of $25.

Never mind that, Chris--they actually have the unmitigated **brass** to charge that fee to monthly ticket holders, who have already **paid** for the grand privilege of riding their ill-maintained trains with decades-old cars through a station that is only partially lit in the predawn hours of the morning and the evening (despite repeated complaints about the numerous street lamps that are out). Any other business that did that would be accused of "double-dipping" (seeking multiple payments for a single service), but not O'Malley's MARC. They're the only ones who are astonished that they still have "plenty of seats available"!
