Metro Will Pick Ten to be First Silver Line Riders

Silver Line construction/Credit: Fairfax CountyThe Silver Line is opening on July 26. Want to be one of the first riders?

Metro is holding a sweepstakes to randomly select 10 lucky winners to participate in the grand opening ceremony and ride on the first Silver Line train.

Each winner and a guest will receive reserved seating at the opening event, a ride on the first train, and an unlimited Metrorail one-day pass for travel to and from the inaugural activities.

“We know there are many people who have been following this project and are anxious to be among the first to ride on the Silver Line,” says Lynn Bowersox, Metro Assistant General Manager.  “This is one of the ways for the public to participate in the grand opening and an opportunity for Metro to say thank you to our riders.”

Here is how to enter: Visit silverlinemetro.com/newsletter and sign up for Metro’s free weekly Silver Bulletin e-newsletter.  For official rules or alternate means of entry, visit silverlinemetro.com.

Metro officials say they will have more details about the opening ceremony next week.

The long-awaited Silver Line will carry riders to four stops in Tysons Corner and one in Reston, at Wiehle-Reston East. The $2.9 billion Phase 1 is more than six months behind schedule.
