The county commissioners on Tuesday approved $57,438 for the purchase of a transit bus for the County Commuter. The bus will hold seven passengers and include three wheelchair positions. It will replace a bus that is 10 years old and that exceeds the Federal Transit Administration's standard of usefulness, according to Kevin Cerrone, director of the county's transportation department. The department is buying the bus from Shepard Bros. Inc., of Canandaigua, N.Y. Normally, the department buys buses through the Maryland Transit Administration.

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. -- Local officials on Thursday talked about what they can do avert a "crisis situation for commuters" that involves eliminating one of three MARC commuter trains that serves Harpers Ferry, Duffields and Martinsburg. The elimination of MARC Train 883 is being considered by the Maryland Transit Administration to reduce funding shortfalls, but state Senator-elect Herb Snyder said Thursday that now is not the time to cut commuter train service in the Eastern Panhandle.

People commuting to the Baltimore area by car or to Washington, D.C., by train might have run into travel difficulties Wednesday morning. Interstate 70 was closed in both directions for more than an hour following a three-vehicle accident east of Md. 97 in Howard County, the Maryland Department of Transportation reported. The accident was reported shortly before 8:30 a.m., according to MDOT. By 9:45 a.m., all but one eastbound shoulder of I-70 had reopened. MARC rail service from Frederick, Md., to Washington was canceled Wednesday morning because a disabled freight train was blocking the tracks, according to the Maryland Transit Administration.
