Austion voices opposition to VRE fare increase
Stafford, Virginia- On Thursday, Laquan Austion, Republican candidate for Virginia House of Delegates in District 2, sent a letter to the Virginia Railway Express opposing the latest fare increase.
The Virginia Railway Express previously raised fares by 4% in 2015 and 2013, in addition to a 3% hike in 2012. The newest proposed fare increase of 3% will cover increased operation costs and will take effect this summer, pending approval.
