Metrorail to Stay Open Late for Sunday’s Rescheduled Redskins Game

photoRedskins fever is here — and Metrorail has it.

The agency says rail service will stay open an additional hour on Sunday, Dec. 30, to accommodate fans attending the Sunday Night game at FedEx Field. The game was rescheduled by the NFL to start at 8:20 p.m.

Fans leaving FedEx Field for Morgan Boulevard station will find the last Blue Line train headed toward Franconia-Springfield at 12:25 a.m., and the last Blue Line train to Largo Town Center at 1:33 a.m. Customers will be able to make connections to other lines as follows:

  • Orange Line – transfer at Stadium-Armory
  • Green or Yellow line – transfer at L’Enfant Plaza
  • Red Line – transfer at Metro Center

Entrances at all other Metro stations will close at their normal times, but customers will be able to exit at all stations during the additional hour of service.

The extended Metrorail service is funded by an agreement with the Washington Redskins.
