Needing a win to keep pace in the playoff race, the Redskins want a loud fanbase against the Panthers on Monday night, but Metro issues could force some fans to choose between leaving early or having no ride home.
The team put out a press release to let fans know that trains will stop running before the end of the game due the ongoing 'SafeTrack' project:
In advance of Monday’s game between the Washington Redskins and Carolina Panthers 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 Monday as required by the Metro SafeTrack program.
Kickoff for Redskins vs Panthers won't take place until 8:30 p.m., and considering the average length of NFL games stretches beyond three hours, fans cannot depend on the Metro to get home. Adding to the tight timeline, the Morgan Boulevard station is one mile from the stadium.
FedEx Field added an Uber pickup/dropoff lot earlier this season, so that may provide an option for fans that use Metro to get to the game. Check Redskins.com for more information.
