VRE board talks about addition of rail cars, trains to accommodate expected rider increases
Date published: 5/19/2012
Another option would be to add a rail car to train 303, which runs from the Fredericksburg area. That would add 260 seats. This would cost VRE an estimated $120,000 annually. VRE could also add two cars to Manassas trains.
The biggest and most expensive move would be to add another VRE train, which could coincide with the opening of the Spotsylvania station.
Such a move would add an estimated 2,200 seats a day. It would cost an estimated $20 million in capital costs and $1.3 million a year in operating costs.
"When Spotsylvania opens," he said, "we'll probably need another train."
