Morgan Boulevard Metrorail station to stay open late for Sunday night's Redskins game
Last train leaves station at 12:27 a.m.
The Morgan Boulevard Metrorail station will stay open late on Sunday, Dec. 27, to accommodate the large crowds expected to attend the football game at nearby FedEx Field.
The last Blue Line train departing Morgan Boulevard for the Franconia-Springfield Metrorail station will be at 12:27 a.m., so fans should head directly to the station as soon as the game ends. If the football game goes into overtime, Metro officials will make sure trains are available to get football fans home.
In anticipation of large crowds, Metro will place additional trains into service at the end of the game. Additional Metro personnel will be at the Morgan Boulevard Metrorail station to assist fans headed to and from the games.
Individuals attending Redskins games who park their cars at the Morgan Boulevard (635 parking spaces) or Largo Town Center (2,200 parking spaces) Metrorail stations will have to pay $25 to park and they must have a SmarTrip card to pay for parking when exiting these facilities. Paid parking at these two stations begins three hours before kickoff, and continues two hours after the game concludes. The numbers of parking spaces are reduced this evening due to piles of snow on the parking lot.
Metro encourages people to buy a round-trip fare card or have enough money on their SmarTrip card when first entering the rail system to avoid standing in long lines after the game.
