VRE's Strategic Plan
In June 2002, the VRE Operations Board authorized the VRE Chief Operating
Officer to issue a task order to Parsons, Brinckerhoff, Quade & Douglas
to provide comprehensive planning services for development of a long-term
(through 2025) strategic plan. The intent of the plan was to perform
technical analysis and modeling to determine future potential ridership
demand and the capital and operating expenses necessary to meet the
demand. The plan also examined potential extensions, their impacts
on ridership, and the costs of such extensions. This document was not
intended to prescribe budget or policy decisions, but rather to inform
the development of the out year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) and
the Six Year Financial Plan and to set a direction for VRE to pursue.
The completed Strategic Plan was presented to the VRE Operations Board
in May 2004.
