Service Plans

VPRA is expanding high-quality, modern passenger rail service across the Commonwealth by making it more frequent, reliable, and convenient. View the proposed passenger and commuter rail service plans below.

Proposed Amtrak Service Plan

The Transforming Rail in Virginia program will:

  • Double the state-supported Amtrak service between Washington, DC, and Richmond, resulting in near-hourly service along this corridor.
  • Increase Amtrak service to Roanoke, Newport News, and Norfolk.
  • Extend Amtrak service from Roanoke to the New River Valley (Christiansburg).

Proposed VRE
Service Plan

Implementing the Transforming Rail in Virginia program will change how Virginians travel, removing traffic from roads and highways and increasing commuting options.

Service on the Virginia Railway Express (VRE) Fredericksburg and Manassas Lines will increase, including options for late-night and weekend travel times.
