Metro issues have impacted plenty of sports in D.C. - most notably Nats and Caps playoff games - but now the 'SafeTrack' program will impact the Redskins crowd on Sunday night.
The team put out a press release to let fans know that trains may stop running before the end of the game:
In advance of Sunday’s game between the Washington Redskins and Green Bay Packers at FedExField, the Redskins are reminding fans that the last train (Franconia-Springfield) will depart the Morgan Boulevard Metro station at 11:27 p.m. on Sunday as required by the Metro SafeTrack program. More information on the SafeTrack program can be accessed at www.wmata.com/rail/safetrack.
Fans attending Sunday are asked to please plan accordingly by visiting www.redskins.com/fedexfield/parking-and-directions for more information, including Uber and cash parking options. As a reminder, the Redskins have established a designated Uber Pick-Up & Drop-Off Zone, a ride-share lot located at the Prince George's County Sports Complex, adjacent to the stadium’s parking lots in the following location: Prince George’s County Sports & Learning Complex, 8001 Sheriff Rd., Hyattsville Md. 20785.
Kickoff of the Redskins vs Packers won't take place until well after 8 p.m., and considering the average length of NFL games stretches beyond three hours, fans depending on the Metro would be in quite a tight time crunch. Adding to the tight timeline, the Morgan Boulevard station is one mile from the stadium.
