7-Day and 31-Day Passes Now Available

Convenient, flexible and economical, two new fare passes were designed with the rider in mind. The 7-Day and 31-Day Passes give passengers the freedom to validate tickets as needed. As their names indicate, the new passes are good for seven or 31 consecutive calendar days after validation.

7-Day Pass

The 7-Day Pass is good for unlimited travel for seven consecutive calendar days from activation. This new pass is intended to eliminate confusion around the 5-Day Pass rules. 

The cost of the 7-Day Pass is the same as the 5-Day, which is being phased out. The 7-Day Pass is available on VRE Mobile release 3.13, and will be available as a paper ticket in December 2019.  

As the 7-Day Pass will not skip weekends and holidays, we recommend purchasing a Ten-Ride Ticket as needed with holiday weeks.

31-Day Pass

The cost of the 31-Day Pass is the same as the Monthly Ticket. The 31-Day Pass is available exclusively on VRE Mobile release 3.13, while the familiar Monthly Ticket is now available only as a paper ticket.

The cost savings associated with a 31-Day Pass stem from its flexibility. Unlike the Monthly Ticket, the 31-Day Pass is available for purchase and activation any day of the month. Monthly Ticket holders often find themselves unable to take advantage of Free Ride Certificates (FRCs). By delaying the validation of a 31-Day Pass, riders may better use FRCs. Passengers who go on vacation can time the validation of the 31-Day Pass to meet their traveling needs.

What about stored tickets and transit benefits?

Any unused or "stored" tickets on VRE Mobile will carry over to the new release of VRE Mobile (3.13).

The move to the new passes will not adversely affect riders’ use of transit benefits. Riders wishing to purchase a 31-Day Pass when their transit benefits become available can do so and wait to validate the pass until they need it.

Track Safety: Learn the facts. Exercise judgement. Teach others.  

It is not only dangerous to walk on train tracks, it is also ILLEGAL. Trains are quieter than ever, and always move faster than they appear.

Head Phones & Announcements
Headphones & Volume

We understand that riders wish to be as comfortable as they can while riding our trains. But remember, train announcements are there for a reason and if you hear them playing, you may wish to take a second and listen. If you do wear headphones, please keep a few things in mind ...

Ladies and gentlemen, children of all ages, step right up and witness the final bow to what was once the greatest ride on Earth! The Circus Train! The RBBX circus trains were more than one mile in length and consisted of 60 railroad cars, which is the equivalent of 120 trucks.

The next time you’re out walking, pay attention to what you are walking on. You just might notice that the ground isn’t exactly clean, with the mud, grass, wet leaves, gum, glass, and general yuck.
