Effective immediately, VRE passengers and crew members will no longer be required to wear a mask onboard the train.

Masks are optional and VRE will continue to support those passengers and crew members who wish to wear a mask.

We would like to thank everyone for their cooperation while the mask mandate was in effect.

Onboard Restrooms

We have received comments and complaints regarding water washing onto the tracks from our restroom cars. We feel it may be helpful to clarify what exactly is occurring when this happens.

Standing Means Detraining (or, Please Don't Queue)

What we really want is to allow detraining passengers an easy exit, and since you can still stand just before your stop, you'll still manage to get off your train in a timely manner. However, if the conductor asks you to find a seat, please do so.
