Students are going to be able to hop on the Metro and go to Tyson’s Corner starting next year.
No doubt many have noticed all the Metro construction going on in this area for some time. According to Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), within one year, the expansion will be completed to Tyson’s and the Metro silver line will be open. Then it’ll continue out to Dulles where the project will be complete in 2016, giving future George Mason students benefits, including that of freedom since many students don’t have a drivers license.
How will this affect Mason? Teachers who live near Tyson’s will benefit with easier commutes. As the Metro expands past Tyson’s and into Dulles by 2016, this will offer more opportunities for field trips since the school is so close to West Falls Church Metro Station.
“I’m very excited about being able to take the Metro to Tyson's,” said Ryan Fields, junior. “It will be more convenient than driving.”
Fields is not the only student looking forward to the silver line. Many students are looking forward to being able to head to the mall easily, especially since there’s a Metro stop right next to school. This will indeed be very convenient and give Mason students something to look forward to in the near future.
