The Metrorail system will grow inVirginia over the next 10 years with the extension to Dulles Airport through Tysons Corner, adding 23.1 miles and 11 new stations.

Metrorail’s fleet consists of 1,130 75-ft. rail cars. The oldest of the fleet, 290 1000-Se- ries cars, were purchased between 1974 and 1978. The newest cars are Metro’s 6000-Series, purchased between 2006 and 2008. Over the next 10 years, Metro plans to replace its oldest cars (the 1000-Series) and begin the design work for the 2000- and 3000-Series replacements. Metro rehabilitates rail cars at their mid-life point (20 years) in order to maintain reliability, avoid high maintenance costs and realize the planned 40 year life-cycle. Metro will perform a comprehensive mid-life rehabilitation of the 4000-Series in the next 10 years and begin the rehabilitation of the 5000-Series. Furthermore, in order to respond to growing ridership trends, Metro plans to acquire new rail cars to expand the rail car fleet.
