VRE plans to maintain schedule

By Jennifer Buske

All Virginia Railway Express trains will run on schedule this afternoon and evening, VRE officials said.

The commuter rail service will move its larger consists to the beginning of rush hour as VRE officials project riders will leave early because of the winter weather.

VRE crews are out at every station clearing walkways and platforms and treating them for any ice, officials said. Riders, however, should still be cautious and not run to catch trains, they added. People should also hold on to handrails on ramps and stairs and stay back from the yellow edge on the platforms. VRE officials said the snow increases the possibility that someone could slip and fall onto the tracks.

A decision about Friday's service will be made by 4:30 a.m. Riders can stay informed by visiting vre.org, watching for Train Talks or calling 1-800-RIDE-VRE.
