Silver Line Opening Events Taking Shape
Now that we know the Silver Line will open on July 26, Metro is working hard to ensure it’s a memorable day.  Members of the public who want to participate in the Silver Line opening are encouraged to join us at one of the five new Silver Line stations for a ride on the inaugural Silver Line trains.

The McLean, Tysons Corner, Greensboro and Spring Hill stations will all open to the public at 11:30 a.m. so that riders can enter the stations to take a look around and purchase fare media. The Wiehle-Reston East station is the exception – it will open shortly before noon following an opening ceremony with regional officials and a ribbon cutting. Space will be limited at those events.

The first Silver Line train will depart Wiehle-Reston East, bound for Largo Town Center, at noon. For people who want to be on that first train, it is expected to depart Spring Hill at approximately 12:08 p.m., Greensboro at 12:10 p.m., Tysons Corner at 12:12 p.m. and McLean at 12:14 p.m., on its way to Arlington, the District of Columbia and out to Largo, MD.
