The Broad Run/Airport Virginia Railway Express station is located at 10637 Piper Lane in the Bristow section of unincorporated Prince William County, Virginia, United States, adjacent to Manassas Regional Airport. It is the last station on VRE's Manassas Line, and has parking for 885 cars. The station is located on a siding that leads off the 2 track main line.[1] The siding continues to a yard for the Virginia Railway Express.

In a letter dated October 3, 2012, Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell initiated a review of "multiple internal control issues" that "call into question the management of the Virginia Railway Express." A former employee brought to VRE's attention that the design of the Broad Run platform would allow a train to hit the platform. The employee's comments were disregarded by VRE management. The train did hit the platform.[2]
