VRE currently has 100 cars in service. Our coaches consist exclusively of Gallery-style cars.

The chart below indicates how many cars are usually on each train.  As the make-up of a train can vary, and since each type of car has a different number of seats, the number is estimated for a typical train of the listed length.

Since ridership is higher midweek, check out the Related Links on this page for "Train Utilization Trends" to see which trains have more seat availability on the busiest days.
