Metro Silver Line – Map - Dulles Metrorail Extension
The Metro Silver Line (also known as the Dulles Metrorail) is a 23-mile extension of the existing Washington Metrorail system in Northern Virginia, which will stretch from East Falls Church to Dulles International Airport, continuing west to Ashburn. The Silver Line will provide direct ground transportation between Dulles International Airport and downtown Washington DC with 11 new Metrorail stations, including stations in Tysons Corner, Reston, Herndon, Dulles International Airport and Eastern Loudoun County. New Metrorail service in the Dulles Corridor will expand the rapid transit service of the existing regional rail system, offer an alternative to automobile travel and reduce the traffic congestion in the region. For general information about the Washington Metro, see a Guide to Using Washington's Metrorail.
Opening Update: The first phase of the Silver Line will open on Saturday, July 26, 2014. Silver Line service will run from Wiehle-Reston East station to Largo Town Center, with trains every 6 minutes during rush hour and every 12 to 20 minutes at other times. Five new stations will include: McLean, Tysons Corner, Greensboro, Spring Hill and Wiehle-Reston East. Work also has begun on Phase 2 of the project, which will connect the Metrorail system with Herndon, Washington Dulles International Airport and points in Loudoun County, VA. See more details about the phases below the map.
