Even if the government shuts down, VRE trains will run
The Virginia Railway Express says its trains will run on Tuesday whether there is a partial government shutdown or not.
The commuter rail service posted a message on its website Monday in response to questions from riders.
Here’s what VRE posted:
We have had questions about our operating status in case of a possible government shutdown. At this time we plan to run train services regardless of any government shutdown. Should this change we will notify riders.
