The new Reston-Wiehle East Metro Station on the Silver Line will feature Fairfax County’s first enclosed, secure bicycle parking facility with a capacity for over 200 bicycles.

The station is one of four scheduled to open later this summer. The Washington Metropolitan Airports Authority turned over control of the completed portion of Phase 1 of the Silver Line to Metro last month. Metro is now conducting testing and staff training and hopes to have the line open by late summer.
