VRE is a
transportation partnership of the Northern Virginia
Transportation Commission (NVTC) and the Potomac and
Rappahannock Transportation Commission (PRTC). VRE provides
commuter rail service linking the Northern Virginia suburbs
to Alexandria, Crystal City and downtown Washington, D.C.
The VRE Operations Board, consisting of seven commissioners
- three each from NVTC and PRTC and the Director of the
Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (VDRPT),
oversees all operating aspects of the Virginia Railway
Express under authority delegated by the two commissions and
consistent with the terms of the VRE Master Agreement. NVTC
and PRTC approve VRE policies, fares, major investments and
legislative initiatives, authorize expenditures greater than
$1,000,000 and approve the annual VRE budget and multi-year
capital improvement program.
