“Our Fredericksburg Line riders have been requesting more commuter rail service for a long time and we’re pleased to deliver greater flexibility and travel choices in the I-95 corridor. The opening of our new station in Spotsylvania County and near completion of a third railroad track between our Crossroads Yard facility and Mine Road have allowed us to provide the new train,” said Doug Allen, VRE Chief Executive Officer.

The new round trip Fredericksburg Line train provides an additional early morning and afternoon opportunity for travel between Spotsylvania and Washington D.C.’s Union Station. PWL The new VRE schedules are being implemented in partnership with Amtrak, CSX Transportation and Norfolk Southern Railway.

This latest service improvement comes during a year in which VRE has opened a new station in Spotsylvania County, launched a new website and mobile ticketing, began studying an 11 mile extension on its Manassas Line to Gainesville and Haymarket, and achieved the Gold Standard for the 2014 Baseline Assessment Security Enhancement Program from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for demonstrating a strong security program.
