Metro Stations on Blue Line Open Later for Redskins Pre-Season Game

The Washington Redskins will take on the New England Patriots on Thursday at FedEx Field in Maryland.

The pre-season game will undoubtedly draw fans from across the region, and those fans will be able to take Metro to and from the game. The public transit service says trains on the Blue line that serves the Franconia-Springfield Metro stop, will run an hour longer Thursday night.

Here’s the latest information in a press release from WMATA:

Metrorail will stay open an additional hour following the Redskins preseason game on Thursday, Aug. 7 at FedEx Field. 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.
