VRE has completed its update to our long-range plan, the System Plan 2050!

VRE's previous System Plan was updated in 2014.  The Washington, D.C. Region is very different today than it was in 2014.  Many new and challenging factors influence how we move around the region. Remote working, hybrid work schedules, evolving regional demographics, increase in housing costs, and changing development patterns all play a role. The Commonweath of Virginia has also made a historic commitment to improve rail service through the Transforming Rail in Virginia initiative, of which VRE is a direct funding partner and beneficiary.  

As travel needs change and rail evolves, we want VRE to continue to be a useful part of your daily life, with service that meets your needs through 2050, and beyond.

We appreciate all the input from our riders, members of the public, elected officials, jurisdiction and partner agency stakeholders, and everyone else who provided valuable direction in the making of this plan.

Transit Asset Management Plan

Asset management is an emerging practice by which agencies use data to make better business decisions. Asset management is an optimized approach to managing critical assets, throughout their lifecycle, to deliver an organization's strategic objectives.

Recent federal legislation established requirements for transit agencies to develop an asset management plan, track, and report on the condition of their assets. VRE's transit asset management program will not only meet Federal requirements, but will also allow VRE to improve operational efficiency, maintain assets in a State of Good Repair, and make data-driven decisions regarding improvements and capital expenditures.

TAM-01-01VRE's asset management program includes the following:

  • Inventory of VRE's assets
  • Guidelines and forms for asset management methodologies and procedures
  • Condition assessment of assets
  • Performance targets set annually
  • Strategies for meeting targets
  • Transit asset management and State of Good Repair Policy
  • Formal Transit Asset Management Plan that will be updated every four years
  • Prioritization process for State of Good Repair improvements
  • Identified prioritization of investments
  • Methods for tracking performance and progress
