One of the things that's surprised me about living near the Aberdeen train station (moved here about 4 years ago) is the mini-horde of taxis greeting most of the MARC trains & some of the weekday Amtrak trains as well. Granted it's not like being in DC or even BWI but there will usually be at least 3 and sometimes as many as 5 or more. You even sometimes see a couple at Perryville although I think they might have been called.

I need to go to Fredericksburg in a couple weeks, I'm helping some relatives clear out some furniture that they are giving me, and that I'm driving back in a rental truck. I will probably take the Carolinian that arrives at noon. Am I going to have to call ahead for a taxi or will some be waiting at the station? Might be safer to call ahead regardless, but I wondered what the situation would be like there.

There is a taxi service directly across the street from the train station. I don't remember the name off the top of my head. I will post back tomorrow with the name. Not sure if you will have to call ahead or can just walk up.

Thanks...I'll probably call ahead and reserve one anyhow.
