Silver Line faces first rush hours

WASHINGTON -- With more than a day of serving riders under its belt, the Silver Line will serve a whole new batch of riders during its first weekday commute.

Phase I of the Silver Line opened to riders Saturday at noon. The line experiences its first rush hours Monday.

The line is the largest expansion of the Metrorail system in two decades and is expected to transport thousands of commuters and revolutionize Tysons Corner. 

The first stretch of the Silver Line will take riders as far west as Reston but eventually the $5.6 billion project will extend Metro beyond Dulles International Airport.
