Metro extends late-night service for Caps game 4
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Metrorail is extending late-night service for Capitals fans for Monday’s game 4.
The system will remain open for an additional hour on June 4 to accommodate fans who plan to watch the Caps face off the Las Vegas Golden Knights in the Stanley Cup finals.
Metro announced that Xfinity will be footing the $100,000 bill which covers the costs needed to keep the 234-mile, 91 station system open for an additional hour.
“We are so excited that the Caps have made it to the Stanley Cup Finals and want our customers and local residents to be able to be there for the games,” said Mary McLaughlin, Senior Vice President of Comcast’s Beltway Region.
For Monday night’s Game 4, the Xfinity sponsorship allows trains to run a full hour beyond Metro’s regular 11:30 p.m. closing time. During the extra hour, fans can enter the system at Gallery Place, Metro Center (11th & G street entrance only), or Judiciary Square (F Street entrance only).
“We encourage everyone to avoid driving, use Metro and rock the red for all of the home games,” said Mayor Muriel Bowser.
