BALTIMORE (AP) - The Maryland Transit Administration is adjusting commuter train and bus service during Pope Francis’ visit to Washington.

Officials say some MARC trains on the Camden and Brunswick lines will add an extra passenger car to carry 125 more riders each during papal events on Wednesday and Thursday. The trains normally carry between three to four passenger cars each.

Additionally, officials say the Brunswick Line train No. 871, which normally operates only on Fridays, will also operate on both days.

The MTA also says that the commuter bus service will run a modified morning and evening schedule on both days. The bus will provide service to five metro stations, including Landover, Silver Spring, Branch Avenue, Suitland and Greenbelt.

The pope arrives to the District on Tuesday and will stay through Thursday.
