Xfinity has partnered with Metro to provide the costs needed for Metrorail’s 234-mile, 91 station system to remain open an additional hour for fans attending Game 4 of the Capitals v. Knights Stanley Cup playoffs at Capital One Arena on Monday, June 4.
“We are so excited that the Caps have made it to the Stanley Cup finals and want our customers and local residents to be able to be there for the games,” said Mary McLaughlin, Senior Vice President of Comcast’s Beltway Region. “We are proud to partner with Metro and Mayor Bowser to ensure our fellow Caps fans can use Metro to get home safely following the game – just one more way we’re working to fit into your life and not the other way around.”
“D.C. is ready for the Capitals to bring the Stanley Cup Finals home to the #SportsCapital. And thanks to Comcast, fans in and around the Capital One Arena will be able to take Metro home after the Caps win Game 4 on Monday night,” said Mayor Muriel Bowser. “We encourage everyone to avoid driving, use Metro and rock the red for all of the home games!”
“We are pleased to provide this extra hour of rail service so fans can support the Caps in the finals,” said D.C. Councilmember and WMATA Board Chair Jack Evans. “Thanks to sponsors like Xfinity, we’re able to provide a ride home after the game, even if it goes into an overtime period.”
Game 3 of the series will be played in D.C. on Saturday night when Metrorail is already open until 1 a.m. Trains will run on their regular schedule; however, Metro is clearing some previously scheduled track work to run trains more frequently.
For Monday night’s Game 4, our Xfinity sponsorship will allow trains to run a full hour beyond Metro’s regular 11:30 p.m. closing time. Fans can check last train times by visiting https://comca.st/2xqCOoL.
