VRE Hosts Virginia Senator

Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), right, visited Virginia Railway Express (VRE) facilities in Spotsylvania County in suburban Northern Virginia on Dec. 14 to tour the station and the Crossroads Maintenance and Storage Facility. He also participated in a briefing about the commuter rail agency’s operations and infrastructure needs, including its ridership increase of 7.5 percent in the past year and the need to fund expanded service. Greeting Kaine were, from left, VRE Operations Board Chairman Gary Skinner and VRE Chief Executive Officer Doug Allen, among other state and local officials, including Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation Director Jennifer Mitchell. Allen and Mitchell noted the need to expand rail capacity over the Potomac River into the District of Columbia as a top priority, a project that could cost $600 million.
