Area Residents Could Weigh in on Planned VRE Hikes

Area residents may get a chance to weigh in on a proposed fare hike to ride the Virginia Railway Express.
Its Operations Board will vote this Friday on whether to hold public hearings on a four percent bump.  According to the VRE agenda, obtained by fredericksburg-dot-com, the increase would offset increases in fuel and other costs.
Meetings would be held in Fredericksburg, Stafford and Manassas in March and April. The hike could go into effect in July.
A three percent increase took affect last July for local riders. The board's long-range plans means that two more such hikes could happen by 2017.
