Dogwood Metro Rail is the upcoming urban rail system serving Dogwood, consisting of two planned light rail lines, the Blue Line and the Gold Line and a planned bus rapid transit line, named the Silver Line. The first phase consisting of the three-stop Blue Line will open in July 2021, with trains running from Madison Beach to Herr Liszt University.

History

When STthecat planned the districts of Dogwood, he also planned the initial 2-line light rail system connecting the districts. Track-laying of Madison Beach station began on April 6, 2021. Currently, it is the only part of the system being built.

At the start of July 2021, the Blue Line will be opened as a 3-station line from Madison Beach to Herr Liszt University.

Further extensions are planned for the system, including the opening of the Gold Line. Once Dogwood reaches [Mayor], the Blue Line will be extended to Crown Pointe, while all stations on the Gold Line will open, excluding Airport. The remaining section of the Gold Line and the Silver Line, a BRT line going towards Broxbourne will open when the town reaches [Senator]. The Silver Line was rerouted to Broxbourne Meridian Water on April 13, 2021 after talks with autobus22.

The Silver Line is a planned intercity bus rapid transit line in the Dogwood Metro Rail system running along Broadway in Dogwood and the yet-to-be-approved Magherra Busway which runs parallel to the planned A188 connecting Dogwood with Broxbourne when completed. The colour of the line is a reference to the colour of the livery of Intra, which serves Broxbourne. If the line is materialised and approved, the Silver Line will open when Dogwood reaches [Senator]. Initially, the line was proposed to terminate near Broxbourne IntraRail, but it was rerouted to Broxbourne Meridian Water.
