WASHINGTON — What could serve as a place to meet dates, a tool to expand a college graduate’s career options and encouragement for a car-less family to leave the house?

According to three new 15-second ads, the Silver Line. The much-anticipated Metro line, which is slated to open July 26, is featured in recently released ads that promise viewers “good times are ahead.”

In one video, a man named John — his only apparent companion a cat — is told that the Silver Line will broaden his dating prospects. In another ad, college grad Donna is told her job opportunities will expand, thanks to the Silver Line’s access into the District.

The first phase of the line includes an 11-mile extension of the Metro system with five new stations, and will eventually extend to Dulles International Airport.

“Now that opening day is in sight, it’s time to get a little excited,” said Lynn Bowersox, Metro assistant general manager, in a release.
