Amtrak Step-Up Program Coming Back To VRE

(Woodbridge)- Virginia Railway Express passengers will soon be able to ride certain overlapping Amtrak routes for no additional charge. VRE is planning to restart its Step-Up program, which allows multi-ride VRE passholders to ride select Amtrak Northeast Regional trains between Fredericksburg and D.C.’s Union Station at no additional charge. The Northern Virginia Transportation Commission recommends granting VRE $1.48 million to restart the program. The funding would allow VRE to bring back the program for the next two years.
