    The Maryland Dept. of Transportation is running an online survey about the future of the MARC train system. They want to know what you think the goal should be.
    Please answer this survey now and tell them you want MARC to set a clear goal. Trains running all day, both ways, seven days a week to Frederick, Brunswick, and Hagerstown.
    There are just a few questions; the survey takes a couple of minutes.
