Silver Line Stations


Welcome aboard! On November 15, the Silver Line Extension opened to the public, bringing the Metrorail system into Loudoun County, Virginia.  The Extension includes 11.4 miles of new track and six new Metrorail stations Reston Town Center, Herndon, Innovation Center, Washington Dulles International Airport, Loudoun Gateway, and Ashburn.

Metro also opened a new, 90-acre rail yard with storage capacity for 168 railcars and maintenance facilities to service, inspect and clean the trains. The Maintenance of Way, Transportation, and Service & Inspection buildings have all been awarded LEED Silver certification as part of Metro's sustainability commitment.

We look forward to seeing you on the Silver Line.  Enjoy the six new stations and endless possibilities...RIDE SILVER!
