The Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) board of directors approved a resolution to name future service running on the Cotton Belt Commuter Rail as the Silver Line.

The Silver Line project’s primary purpose is to provide passenger rail connections and service improving mobility, accessibility, and system linkages to major employment, population, and activity centers in the northern part of the DART Service Area, and in time, along the 60-mile corridor connecting Plano to Ft. Worth.

The 26-mile Silver Line, extending between DFW Airport and Shiloh Road in Plano, will traverse seven cities: Grapevine, Coppell, Dallas, Carrollton, Addison, Richardson, and Plano. At DFW Airport, the project will connect to the TEXRail Regional Rail Line to Fort Worth and provide access to the DFW Airport Skylink. The Silver Line will interface with three DART light rail lines: The Red/Orange Lines in Richardson/Plano, the Green Line in Carrollton, and the Orange Line at DFW Airport.

Customers will see the Silver Line in operation after completion in 2022 with 30-minute peak and 60-minute off-peak service.
