Silver Line to IAD (Dulles) is OPEN!

Stop spending $55 on Ubers or switching from the Metro at Rosslyn to a city bus, or the Washington Flyer from Reston Station… ditch all of that!

How long will it take from DCA? 62 minutes

How long will it take from the Smithsonian? 58 minutes

What will it cost to ride?

Like the rest of the Metrorail system, the cost of riding the Silver Line depends on the time of day and distance traveled.

The maximum that Metro charges is $6 on weekdays. Fares drop to a flat $2 after 9:30 p.m. on weekdays and all day on weekends

How often will trains run?

Silver Line trains will operate every 15 minutes to start, although waits are expected to shorten over the next six months as Metro incorporates more trains into service.

Trains eventually will operate every 10 minutes during rush hour, every 12 minutes during midday, evening and weekends, and every 15 minutes after 9:30 p.m.

What are Metrorail’s hours of operation?

The Silver Line will operate during the same hours as the rest of the Metrorail system:

∙ Monday through Thursday from 5 a.m. until midnight.
∙ Friday from 5 a.m. until 1 a.m.
∙ Saturday from 7 a.m. until 1 a.m.
∙ Sunday from 7 a.m. until midnight
