Winter Storm Disrupts Air & Bus Travel
BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The blast of winter weather is certainly causing trouble for people throughout Maryland, especially those traveling by air or bus.
Christie Ileto has more.
It wasn’t the usual hustle and bustle at Penn Station Tuesday evening.
“I’ve been waiting for my friend to come back for two hours now,” said Daniel Lopez.
It’s a waiting game for those traveling during a fast moving storm, slamming Baltimore with several inches of snow.
“We’ve had the run of the mill. There’s no lines anywhere,” said Rachel Joines.
“I just got a text message from her; they said they’re going to transfer her to another track,” Lopez said.
On Twitter, a passenger snapped a picture of snow inside the train car saying he’s stuck en route because of a broken track.
“I want to be on time,” said Stacy Reid.
Reid’s heading to Georgia and hopes she won’t have a similar fate.
If you look around at Penn Station, it’s pretty empty. Head over to BWI, it’s the same story. At the Southwest counter at BWI, there’s hardly any lines. That’s because by Tuesday evening, almost 35 percent of flights had been canceled at BWI and 12 percent were delayed.
On the ground, MTA says metro and light rail trains are on time and MARC trains have minor delays.
Rachel Joines and her son are headed to Germany. So far, there are no delays on their trip but they came early just in case and are keeping busy.
“Watch airplanes go up and down, up and down,” her son Jack said.
Others weren’t so lucky.
“We were on the Super Shuttle on the way here and found out our flight had been canceled,” said Bonnie Cohen.
Amtrak will be operating on a modified schedule Wednesday and if you’re headed to the airport, check the status of your flight or train before you head out the door.
