What is the Silver Line Station Areas Plan?

More transit opportunities are on the way in Plano. The 26-mile-long Silver Line commuter rail corridor is under construction and will extend between the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and Shiloh Road in Plano. DART, the operator of the commuter rail corridor, anticipates service to begin as early as late 2025.  This will result in two new stations in Plano served by the Silver Line, a 12th Street Station and Shiloh Road Station. In addition, a new 12th Street Red/Orange Line light rail station will be constructed to serve as a transfer point between the Silver Line and the existing light rail corridor. This substantial public investment is expected to be an economic development catalyst for southeast Plano and the greater Downtown core.

In Fall 2020, the city undertook the Silver Line Corridor – Market Assessment & Economic Development Strategy as a first step in understanding the impacts of the DART rail on surrounding land use. Following the completion of this study, in February 2022, the Planning & Zoning Commission directed staff to initiate an area plan within a half-mile of the future Silver Line stations in order to guide development patterns and address redevelopment opportunities presented in the market study. This planning effort is anticipated to occur throughout 2023, and public input will be a priority throughout the process to create a long-range planning policy that represents the community's vision and guides the future of these station areas.

How will we develop the plan?


Understand and evaluate existing conditions


Identify challenges and opportunities for land uses and development


Host discussions with the public to identify the vision for the transit stations
