MARC and Metro Extend Service for Caps Playoff Run

Metro and MARC train have extended their service to accommodate fans attending the Washington Capitals’ Stanley Cup playoff games in D.C.

Metro said it reached an agreement with Xfinity to keep Metrorail running an additional hour for Game 4 of the Stanley Cup final on Monday, June 4. There was no need to extend service for Game 3 on Saturday because Metro is already open until 1 a.m. The cost of the extra service has been pegged at $100,000.

Here are the last Metro trains departing Monday:

Red: in the direction of Glenmont 12:38 a.m.; Shady Grove 12:32 a.m.

Green: in the direction of Branch Ave 12:28 a.m.; Greenbelt 12:48 a.m.

Yellow: in the direction of Huntington 12:19 a.m.

MARC train said it will add a northbound Penn Line train departing one hour after Game 3 (Saturday, June 2) and Game 4 (Monday, June 4.) The final train will wait for passengers regardless of how late the game goes and will make all stops between Washington, D.C. and Baltimore’s Penn Station.

This service is in addition to the regular MARC service.

Plans for Game 6 (Sunday, June 10) will be announced later, if necessary.

MARC riders must have a valid ticket, which cost $5 to $8 depending on the destination.

The Stanley Cup final series is currently tied 1-1, after the Capitals 3-2 win over the Las Vegas Golden Knights Wednesday night.
