Metro Prepares For Monday Night Football at FedEx Field

Play associated audio

Metro is preparing for tonight's football game at FedEx Field, where the Washington Redskins will take on the Philadelphia Eagles. The transit agency is expecting large crowds Monday evening and plans to have more trains in service as the game ends.

The Morgan Boulevard station on Metro's Blue line will stay open an hour longer than usual to accommodate the rush. The last Blue Line train is scheduled to depart Morgan Boulevard for the Franconia-Springfield station at 12:27 a.m. If the game goes into overtime, Metro says it will make sure trains are available to get fans home.

Metro encourages people taking the train to buy a round trip fare card or to make sure there's enough money on their SmarTrip cards before the game to avoid long lines afterward. People who don't ride the train, but who park at the Morgan Boulevard or Largo Town Center stations for the game will have to pay $25 using a SmarTrip card.
