No Late Train Service After Wednesday Night Soccer

Mind the clock if you take Metrorail to Wednesday night's soccer doubleheader at RFK Stadium. Metrorail says the train system will shut down at midnight, as usual.

The first game, Haiti against Grenada, is scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday. The main event for most people, Team USA against Honduras, is scheduled to start at 9 p.m.

Because of the cost to us taxpayers, Metro stays open late only if a government or private sponsor steps in to cover the expenses, and that hasn't happened for the Wednesday soccer games.

Here's a page with information about driving, biking or taking transit to RFK.

The last trains on the Blue and Orange lines from Stadium-Armory Station leave at these times on weeknights:
To Franconia-Springfield - 11:50 p.m.
To Largo Town Center - 12:20 a.m.
To New Carrollton - 12:21 a.m.
To Vienna - 11:50 p.m.

Last time Honduras came to RFK, the crowd numbered 50,000.

Pathetic.
