WMATA Plans to Offer Extended Metro Rail Service on Nights When Sporting Events Run Late

WMATA recently announced that on evenings when DC sporting events run late, they will extend metro service.

Starting today (April 27), WMATA will keep their metro trains running for an additional 30 minutes after games end.

Currently, Metrorail service is provided daily until 11:00 PM.  Metro’s “flex” service offered after sporting events will extend the train hours until midnight at the latest.

This extended service will be offered after Caps, Wizards, Mystics, Washington Football Team, Nats, and DC United games from now until the end of the year.

During these extended hours, only the stations closest to the arenas will be open for entry– all other stations will be exit only.

You can see the full update from WMATA here, including which stations will remain open for entry.
