Virginia Railway Express (VRE)

The Virginia Railway Express (VRE) is the fastest and most convenient way to make day trips to all the cultural attractions of the nation’s capital or to make Metro connections to the Washington, D.C. airports. These commuter trains start running as early as 5:15 a.m. and return as late as 7:40 p.m. during the week. Weekend service is offered by Amtrak.
