Step-Up Cost

We've temporarily lowered the cost of a single-ride Amtrak Step-Up ticket from $8 to $4! 

While VRE is unable to run additional or longer trains, the temporary reduction is part of VRE’s effort to accommodate Metrorail passengers during this summer’s closure of six stations south of National Airport for platform repairs.

Learn more on the Step-Up page, then consider VRE Mobile to purchase your multi-ride VRE tickets and Amtrak Step-Up tickets.

Please note as of October 1, 2019, Step-Up tickets have returned to their regular price.

The Summons Process

We have long stated that we expect only two things from our riders: to be on the platform and ready to board before the train's arrival and to validate one's ticket before boarding the train. If one boards the train without a validated ticket, then that individual is at risk of receiving a citation for fare evasion.
