Hero Steps In to Keep Metro Open Late for Game 5

13 Octobre 2017

Both parties refused to budge, but a third-party sponsor has stepped in to keep Metro open an additional hour Thursday for Game 5 of the NLDS at Nationals Park. "We want everyone attending these events to enjoy their experience and have a safe ride home at the end of the night".

Metro's current Monday through Thursday schedule means that the last train going north out of the Navy Yard Station with available transfers to the rest of the system leaves the station at 11:22 p.m. The last Green Line train to Branch Avenue will depart Navy Yard-Ballpark Station at 12:48 a.m.

"Our commitment to the D.C. community extends beyond powering our customers' homes and businesses", said Exelon CEO Chris Crane said.

The DA's office said Tuesday that the recording is "horrifying", but it was insufficient to prove a crime had occurred. Since Vance began running for district attorney, Boies' son Christopher has given Vance's campaigns $35,000.

After SafeTrack, the yearlong maintenance program that concluded in June, Metro lifted its moratorium on late closings and early openings for special events.

The late-night service issue also came up a year ago, during SafeTrack, when General Manager Paul J. Wiedefeld cited the agency's urgent safety needs in refusing to run extra trains during the playoffs.

It's certainly possible that Thursday night's game will resolve in time for Metro riders. Some fans broke out in a chant: "Metro sucks".
