The new Potomac Yard Station provides additional Metrorail access between Alexandria, Va. and the DC region, with a gateway to retail, dining, education, job opportunities, and services. This is the 98th rail station and the second infill station in Metro's history. The station offers walkable access to the Virginia Tech Innovation Campus under development, connections to other regional transportation systems, Bike & Ride facilities, and walking paths to the station from the surrounding area. More than 3,750 feet of new track was used to connect Potomac Yard Station with the existing Metrorail tracks to bring this station to life.
