WASHINGTON (WUSA9/WMATA)--If you are taking the rails to the Redskins-Patriots preseason game on Thursday, August 7 at FedEx Field Metro says they will stay open an additional hour following the game to get you home.
According to WMATA "Riders traveling during the additional hour should enter the system at Morgan Boulevard or Largo Town Center stations no later than 12:20 a.m. to ensure that they make the last Blue or Silver Line trains in the direction of Franconia-Springfield or Wiehle-Reston East, respectively."
Station entrances at all other Metro stations will close at their normal times, but riders will be able to exit at all stations during the additional hour of service.
Riders will be able to make connections to other lines as follows:
- Orange Line to West Falls Church, Dunn Loring or Vienna: Take Silver Line and transfer to Orange Line at East Falls Church
- Orange Line toward New Carrollton: Take Blue or Silver line and transfer at Stadium-Armory
- Green or Yellow lines: Take Blue or Silver line and transfer at L'Enfant Plaza
- Red Line: Take Blue or Silver line and transfer at Metro Center
WMATA says the extra hour of Metrorail service is funded by the event organizers.
