Metro Extends Hours for Redskins-Giants Game
The Washington Redskins will meet the Super Bowl champions New York Giants at FedEx Field in a few hours. The Redskins, who have not won a Monday night since September 2007, first played the Giants in October 1932. Theirs is the oldest rivalry in the NFC East Division. The hometown fans are up for the game, however, and will get more time to get home with extended Metrorail times.
Here's a media alert from the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority:
Metrorail will stay open an additional hour on Monday, Dec. 3, to accommodate the crowds expected to attend the Washington Redskins Monday Night Football game at FedEx Field.
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.
