Currently, the total cost of the proposed budget is $84 million, including $70 million in operating expenses and $14 million in capital expenses.

PRTC is the federal grant applicant for federally participating projects that PRTC, Virginia Railway Express (VRE), and Fredericksburg Regional Transit (FXBGO!, formerly FRED), envision applying for in FY 2025. Public comment is invited on all those projects as proposed.
