Delivering regional rail to seven cities, the newly-branded Silver Line regional rail service will transform the northern part of DART's Service Area and improve mobility and accessibility across the region.
The 26-mile regional rail project will provide connections to major employers, higher education, DFW Airport, three DART Rail lines, the DCTA A-train and Trinity Metro's TEXRail. Combined with the new TEXRail service, riders will enjoy 60 miles of regional rail stretching all the way from Plano to Fort Worth.
After completion in 2022, the new Silver Line will offer service every 30 minutes during peak travel times and every 60 minutes during off-peak.

With construction about to begin on the new Silver Line along the historic Cotton Belt regional rail corridor, DART reminds everyone that construction areas can be very dangerous. Play it safe by following these 10 tips:
- Look up, stay alert -- phones, video games and other electronic devices can be distracting.
- Remove an earbud or turn down the volume. Headphones can keep you from hearing approaching bulldozers, dump trucks and other construction vehicles.
- Do not walk, ride, run, hang out or play in construction zones or work areas, as heavy machinery and debris pose dangers.
- Use sidewalks or designated paths and be aware of sidewalk closures or temporary walkways.
- Cross only at designated crosswalks, as construction vehicles make sudden stops and wide turns.
- Make eye contact with construction vehicles before crossing -- see and be seen.
- Observe all construction signs and warnings.
- Keep away from construction fencing and traffic cones -- they’re there to protect you.
- Watch out for falling objects, dust and other hazards.
- Finally, remember: Safety begins with you. Talk to your family.
