The background

The Silver Line is a 26-mile regional rail that will run from Dallas Fort Worth International Airport to Shiloh Road in Plano. The rail will connect nine stations across seven cities when finished. Officials broke ground on the rail in 2019.

Service is expected to begin between late 2025 and mid-2026.
