Rockville

Rockville is a joint Washington Metro, MARC, and Amtrak train station in Rockville, Maryland, United States. The station was opened on December 15, 1984, and is operated by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA). The station is serviced by the Red Line, and is located in downtown Rockville at Hungerford Drive (MD 355) near Park Avenue. The government buildings for Rockville and Montgomery County are located about two blocks away, as are those of several large companies. MARC's Brunswick Line commuter trains and Amtrak's daily Capitol Limited share the station building with Metro. The Metro portion of the station has an island platform with tracks on either side, while MARC and Amtrak use the two tracks adjacent to two side platforms on the east side of the station.

An old Baltimore and Ohio Railroad station was moved to make way for the Metro. The station opened on December 15, 1984. Its opening coincided with the completion of 7 miles (11 km) of rail northwest of the then named Grosvenor station and the opening of the Shady Grove, Twinbrook, and White Flint stations.
