WASHINGTON, D.C. – Metro will deliver late-night service to Caps fans tonight after the big game!

Just days after the extended service was called off, Mayor Bowser announced that Qatar and Downtown DC BID teamed up to help keep Metrorail open an hour later than usual.

Metro says the cost to keep the Metrorail system open an additional hour is $100,000.

After Metro’s regular closing time, Caps fans can enter the system at three stations: Gallery Place, Metro Center (11th & G street entrance only) or Judiciary Square (F Street entrance only). All other stations will be “exit only.”

“Qatar is proud to partner with Mayor Bowser, Downtown DC BID, and WMATA and support D.C. fans for tonight’s Capitals game. We believe in bringing communities closer together through sports,” said the Qatar Embassy in Washington in a tweet.
