If you are planning to head to Capital One Arena via Metro on Tuesday (5/15) Night for the Capitals Playoff Game 3, you are in luck!
WMATA announced that they would stay open an additional hour for the game!
According to FOX 5 DC, the cost of the extended service is $100,000 and is being funded by Exelon, the parent company of Pepco. So, what up Pepco? Thanks for doing that!
"We know how important it is when the hometown team advances in the playoffs, and we want to make sure our customers can be there for every play and get home safely-and emissions free-by powering the Metro's extended hours Tuesday night," said Exelon President and CEO Chris Crane. "We believe that helping our customers be there to cheer on the Capitals is its own kind of power play, and we are pleased to partner with Metro and the Mayor and to make it happen."
The Capitals are up 2 games to none and are just 2 wins away from heading to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in 20 years.
