Metro/Xfinity extended late-night service tonight will include Outdoor Watch Party

Fans attending the Caps Stanley Cup Game 4 outdoor watch party at Farragut Square tonight will be able to enter the Metrorail system at Farragut West and Farragut North stations during the extra hour of service, Metro announced today. The event is being hosted by the Golden Triangle Business Improvement District (BID) and the National Park Service, in collaboration with the Washington Capitals, Monumental Sports and Entertainment, and the National Hockey League (NHL).

Trains will run an additional hour beyond Metro’s regular closing time tonight for fans attending Game 4 of the Capitals v. Knights Stanley Cup Finals at Capital One Arena tonight thanks to Xfinity, who is funding the extra hour of service.

After 11:30 p.m., fans attending the game at Capital One Arena can enter the Metrorail system at Gallery Place, Metro Center (11th & G street entrance only), or Judiciary Square (F Street entrance only).

Fans attending the Golden Triangle watch party can enter the system at Farragut West or Farragut North stations.

“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. “We are proud to partner with Metro and Mayor Bowser to ensure our fellow Caps fans can use Metro to get home safely following the game – just one more way we’re working to fit into your life and not the other way around.”

“D.C. is ready for the Capitals to bring the Stanley Cup Finals home to the #SportsCapital. And thanks to Comcast, fans in and around the Capital One Arena will be able to take Metro home after the Caps win Game 4 on Monday night,” said Mayor Muriel Bowser. “We encourage everyone to avoid driving, use Metro and rock the red for all of the home games!”

“We are pleased to provide this extra hour of rail service so fans can support the Caps in the finals,” said D.C. Councilmember and WMATA Board Chair Jack Evans. “Thanks to sponsors like Xfinity, we’re able to provide a ride home after the game, even if it goes into an overtime period.”
