(This page features information about Tysons Portion of the Metro Rail System)
Hello and Welcome to the Tysons Metro Rail Page.
On this page we feature various info relating to the Tysons portion of the Washington Metropolitan Metro Rail System. The rail line that runs through Tysons on it's way to Wheile Avenue Reston and ultimately out to Dulles Airport in 2019 (Phase II under construction) is known as the "Silver Line" of the Metro Rail system.
The new extension of the Washington Metro Rail System called the Silver Line was decades in the making, planned to go from the central core of Washington D.C. all the way out to Dulles Airport and a little beyond into Loudoun County, a distance of about 23 miles. In July of 2014 a Phase I opened out to Reston Virginia with five stations along the route, four of which are in Tysons (McLean, Tysons, Greensboro, Spring Hill, and Wheile-Reston East). There is a nice history timeline summary of the overall project on the dullesmetro.com website along with lots of other info about this rail project. The Silver Line has it's own official website called silverlinemetro.com
The Tysons portion of the Metro Silver Line consists of four stations. Mclean Station is the most easterly while Tysons Corner Station is between the two regional shopping malls then Greensboro Station is roughly the most centrally location station and finally there is Spring Hill Station being the most westerly before the rail line turns westward again onto the Dulles Toll road out towards Reston and beyond.
