Current VRE Timetables - Effective September 8, 2020
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, VRE will operate at a reduced service level until further notice. The “S” schedule level will be supplemented with Train 300 for the northbound commute and Train 307 for the southbound commute. As we scale back up to full service, we may continue to do it in phases, possibly adding cars to the six car sets, or adding more round trips on each line.
Additionally, for Amtrak to better manage social distancing onboard their trains, the Step-Up program is temporarily suspended. The duration of this suspension is unknown at this time.
We suggest that you be on the platform with your ticket validated at least 5 minutes prior to the train’s scheduled departure time, and that you use our contactless ticketing option, VRE Mobile.
Virginia Railway Express is a commuter rail service that under normal circumstances, runs Monday through Friday from the Northern Virginia suburbs to Washington, D.C. We primarily travel northbound in the morning, towards Washington, and southbound during the evening, towards Manassas (along I-66), and Fredericksburg (along I-95). VRE does not operate service on weekends or Federal holidays. Click here to view our normal, full schedule. Please note if you are only traveling between Alexandria and Union Station, you may ride either the Fredericksburg or Manassas line.
