Metro Releases Commemorative SmarTrip Card for MLS All-Star Game

Metro is inviting fans from around the world to ride Metro to see the Major League Soccer All-Star Game. To commemorate the occasion, Metro is releasing a limited-edition MLS All-Star SmarTrip® card, ahead of the big game.

MLS All-Star Game Commemorative SmarTrip CardMetro General Manager Randy Clarke unveiled the commemorative All-Star cards at an event today with MLS, DC United, Mayor Muriel Bowser and other local officials. The cards feature an image of Audi Field, the MLS logo with All-Star, the location, and year printed over a red background. The cards are available while supplies last. Get one now at Navy Yard, Waterfront, and L’Enfant Plaza stations. Look for the sign at specially marked fare vending machines.

Per Metro: “We’re really excited to welcome MLS Soccer, its players, and fans for the All-Star Game,” said Clarke. “Come on out to root for the All-Star festivities and cheer on the best of MLS against as they take on the Premier League’s Arsenal FC and take in the All-Star festivities. It’s a quick and easy ride away on Metro without all the hassle of traffic and parking.”

Metro’s Green Line is the best way to get to the game at Audi Field using the Waterfront or Navy Yard stations, just a short 10 or 15-minute walk to the field. Fans headed to All-Star activities at The Wharf can also take the Green Line to Waterfront or use the 74 Metrobus to get there. You can pick up Metro’s 74 bus route from L’Enfant Plaza or Navy Yard which will drop you off two blocks from the field or use the 74 Special bus, running July 18-19, for direct service to/from the Waterfront Station and events around Audi Field.
