Heat Restrictions on the Fredericksburg Line for Wednesday 7/29

Heat Restrictions on the Fredericksburg Line for Wednesday 7/2=
9

=20

=20

=20

Heat restrictions on the Frederick=
sburg Line today from 1pm-7pm. 

For the uninitiated, heat related de=
lays accumulate over the course of the trip so the farther you go, the lo=
nger the delay will be. If your destination is Franconia/Springfield, you=
will likely not notice the two minute delay. However, if you travel all =
the way to Fredericksburg, the delay will be approximately eleven minutes=
. The train crews will do everything they can to make up time along the w=
ay to minimize any delays.

If you have further questions, pleas=
e follow this link  http://www.vre.org/feedback/frequently_=
asked_questions/faq_heat_orders.htm

As always, thanks for riding VRE.

An update to VRE Mobile which fixes the split payment bug and other =

That said, please know we have been reading your feedback and are work=

The app defaults to the “My Tickets” section instead of to “Buy Ticke=
ts” making it easier to show your ticket to the conductors.
Simplifying the split payment screen.
Confirmation payment screen before purchase is made.
Ability to add favorite/recurring purchases.

In addition to those enhancements, we are working for bigger upgrades =
further down the road, such as:

SmartBenefits wizard that will simplify the use of WMATA (Metro) admi=
nistered SmartBenefits.
Blackberry and Windows versions of the app.
Trip Tools to help plan your trip to and/or from VRE.

As always, please let us know your thought on VRE Mobile by emailing f=
eedback@vre.org or calling 844-353-3408.

Thanks for using the app and for riding VRE.
