Metro's rail service will run for an additional hour Thursday for Game 5 of the Washington Nationals versus the Chicago Cubs.
Mayor Muriel Bowser and Metro General Manager and CEO Paul J. Wiedefeld announced their decision Thursday.
“Tonight, Washington, DC will host the Nationals’ NLDS championship game and the exciting opening of The Wharf,” said Mayor Bowser. “We want everyone attending these events to enjoy their experience and have a safe ride home at the end of the night. Go Nats and enjoy The Wharf!”
