DART – Let's Go.

Silver Line, new regional rail service along the Historic Cotton Belt Corridor

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.
