Catching the VRE from Fredericksburg VA is no signs telling you how or where to purchase a ticket. They have machines set up, but they are known to be out of order a lot. If you aboard the train and tell the conductor you need to purchase a ticket they give you a fine for $180.00 and a summons to court. This is not fair to riders. Let your voice be heard and not through your pockets or having a negative record.
