Historical Information

The Dulles Corridor Rail Association (DCRA) is a nonprofit membership organization formed to advocate rail in the Dulles corridor. DCRA advises decision makers on transit-related issues, including funding, operations, station location and access, and use, and implementation issues.

DCRA provides a voice for its members and others who live and work in the greater Dulles corridor who support rail as an essential component of an integrated development program for the corridor. DCRA works to build business and community support for the project and coordinates the efforts of individuals and groups to speak in a unified, consistent, and persistent way to express that support.
