Virginia Railway Express (VRE) is among five rail and mass transit agencies to receive the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) “Gold Standard” highest security rating for 2014. TSA Division Director Sonya Proctor presented the award at the VRE Operations Board meeting in Woodbridge, Va.

The five agencies that achieved the “Gold Standard” rating were VRE, Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, MTA Long Island Rail Road, Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority and Hillsborough Area Regional Transit.

“VRE is to be commended for its commitment and hard work this level of achievement requires, and for their continued dedication to ensure the security of travelers,” said TSA Acting Administrator Melvin Carraway.

“VRE is proud of the commuter rail service we provide, and our focus on safety and security,” said VRE CEO Doug Allen.

VRE is the tenth largest commuter rail service in the U.S. It is a transportation partnership of the Northern Virginia and Potomac & Rappahannock Transportation Commissions.
