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.
