Metro to stay open later for Sunday’s Redskins game

Metro said that it will stay open an extra hour on Sunday for fans to use the rail system as they go to FedEx field.

The game starts at 8:20 p.m. 

The extra hour of service is paid for by an agreement with the Washington Redskins. Metro typically closes at midnight on Sundays.

Officials at Metro said the last Blue Line train, headed toward Franconia-Springfield will leave at 12:25 a.m. The last Blue Line train to Largo Town Center will leave at 1:33 a.m.

Customers can make connections to other lines. They can make transfers on the Orange Line at Stadium-Armory, L’Enfant Plaza and Metro Center to get to FedEx field.

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