New Service Expanded to Norfolk, VA

Norfolk residents can experience the return of reliable train service to the city.

  • One-seat rides make it easy to book business travel, a weekend getaway, a family visit or college trips to Petersburg, Richmond, Washington DC, Philadelphia, New York and cities all the way up to Boston. For leisure travelers, the service provides a great way to visit sights in Virginia and north of Washington without having to face long traffic delays in the bridges and tunnels.
  • A new transportation option for military members traveling between Southside Hampton Roads, Fort Lee, Quantico and the Pentagon, plus a 10% fare discount for active-duty military and family.
