The Virginia Railway Express (VRE) last week extended its operations contract with Keolis Rail Services Virginia LLC for five years. 

Under the contract, Keolis will provide locomotive engineers and conductors to operate VRE commuter trains between central and northern Virginia and the District of Columbia. The company also will manage VRE's claims and reporting for the Federal Railroad Administration.

VRE officials also increased Keolis' maintenance services contract authorization for fiscal-year 2021. Work performed under the agreement includes lifecycle maintenance and rolling stock repair through a task order process, as well as daily and periodic servicing, and inspection and repair of locomotives, passenger rail cars and maintenance facilities.
