    FAQ: Can VRE add weekend service?

    Our current agreements with our host railroads prohibit weekend VRE operations given the large amount of freight traffic that is held out of the territory during the weekdays. This is done so that VRE trains can operate as smoothly and efficiently as possible during our core service period.

    FAQ: When will VRE get Wi-Fi?

    Until cell phone towers are put in place all along our railsystem so that riders have 100% connectivity, wi-fi will not be available. We do not want our passengers to experience a service that might be more of an inconvenience than a convenience (long buffering, lost connectivity with unsaved documents, frequent timing out, etc.).

    SAFETY REMINDER:
    Do not sit on the stairs while riding the train.
