Xfinity will pay for Metro to stay open late an hour beyond its normal closing time this Monday for the Capitals’ Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final.
“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,” senior vice president of Comcast’s Beltway region Mary McLaughlin said in a statement. “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.”
According to Metro, the fee needed for extended service is $100,000 – the amount Xfinity will pay to keep the transportation system open for the additional hour.
“We are pleased to provide this extra hour of rail service so fans can support the Caps in the finals,” D.C. Councilmember and WMATA Board Chair Jack Evans said. “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, which will also be played in D.C., is this Saturday night. Metro already stays open until 1 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
Both Game 3 and Game 4 are scheduled to start at 8 p.m. ET as are all other Stanley Cup Final games.
The Capitals currently trail 1-0 in the series against the Vegas Golden Knights. Game 2 of the series will be played Wednesday night in Las Vegas.
