Loudoun County is celebrating the opening of Metrorail’s Silver Line extension and the beginning of passenger service to and from the three new Metrorail stations in Loudoun. Metro provides Loudoun residents with a new transportation option for accessing employment, entertainment, and the region’s two airports, as well as other destinations served by Metro.
Members of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors joined national, regional and local dignitaries — including U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg — Tuesday morning for a ceremony hosted by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), marking the official opening of the Dulles Airport Metrorail Station and the Silver Line extension. In addition, members of the Loudoun Board hosted a ribbon cutting and reception Tuesday afternoon at the new Ashburn Metrorail Station, which is the end of the Silver Line in Loudoun County. The first Silver Line passenger train departed the Ashburn Metro Station shortly before 2:00 p.m.
