Amtrak Virginia adds Burke Centre stop on Northeast Regional route


Yesterday, Amtrak Virginia began stopping at a station in Burke Centre on the Northeast Regional route. The station previously only provided connecting service for Virginia Railway Express (VRE) passengers.

Northeast Regional service between Lynchburg and the Northeast Corridor now features stops in Charlottesville, Culpeper, Manassas, Burke Centre and Alexandria, Va. A station in L’Enfant Plaza will continue to provide connecting service for VRE riders.

“With this new stop in Fairfax County, we’re providing better access to Amtrak service in one of Virginia’s densely populated counties,” said Charles Badger, Director of the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation, in a prepared statement.
