Intercity Rail Rides Again in Virginia

Intercity rail service has begun operations in Virginia, connecting Lynchburg and Washington D.C.

Another line between Richmond, Virginia and Washington D.C. is set to open December 15.

"The new service is part of a $17.2 million, three-year pilot program the state is running, and fully funding, to determine whether enhanced rail service is viable in Virginia. The pilot program will offer two trains, one from Richmond and one from Lynchburg, that will travel to Union Station and then on to Boston. Service between the Virginia terminuses and Washington will include stops at some Virginia Railway Express stations; service between Washington and Boston will include stops in Philadelphia and New York."
