About the DART Silver Line Project

Cotton Belt Corridor Regional Rail Project Map (PDF) Opens in new windowThe 26-mile Cotton Belt Corridor extends from Dallas-Fort Worth Airport to Shiloh Road in Plano. The DART Silver Line Project will follow this corridor and traverse seven cities, including Coppell. The Project's primary purpose is to provide passenger rail connections and service that will improve mobility, accessibility, and system linkages to major employment, population and activity centers in the northern part of the DART Service Area. The DART Silver Line Project would interface with three DART Light Rail Transit (LRT) lines: The Red Line in Richardson/Plano, the Green Line in Carrollton, and the Orange Line at Dallas-Forth Worth Airport. Also at Dallas-Fort Worth Airport the project would connect to Fort Worth Transit Authority's TEX Rail Regional Rail Line to Fort Worth and the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport Skylink People Mover. The Silver Line will be in operation after completion in 2022 with 30-minute peak and 60-minute off-peak service.

Note: The DART Silver Line Project was formerly referred to as the DART Cotton Belt Rail Line Project until June 2019 when the future service running on the corridor was named Silver Line.
