WAMU transportation reporter Martin Di Caro joins us for an update on when we can expect the opening of the rail line that will eventually connect Metro to Dulles Airport.

We get an update as to when we can expect the opening of the Silver Line, which will eventually connect Metro to Dulles Airport.
