Rail transportation

Manassas began life as Manassas Junction, so-named for the railroad junction between the Orange and Alexandria Railroad and the Manassas Gap Railroad. The O&A owned the trackage from Alexandria through Manassas to points south, ending in Orange, Virginia, while the MGRR was a new line being constructed from Manassas Junction through the Manassas Gap westward.

The current trackage, which roughly follows these original routes, is now owned by the modern day Norfolk Southern system.

Amtrak and the Virginia Railway Express (VRE) supply both regular and commuter service to the city and surrounding area on the tracks owned by the NS. Two Amtrak routes, the Cardinal and Crescent, provide service to and from the west and south, respectively. The Cardinal terminates in Chicago, while the Crescent ends at New Orleans. VRE is a very popular commuting option to Alexandria and Washington, D.C..

Also in the vicinity of Manassas are branch campuses of George Mason University, Northern Virginia Community College, ECPI College of Technology and Strayer University. Despite that some of these may in fact be just outside the city limits in Prince William County, NVCC and Strayer call these branches their “Manassas Campuses.”
