Another donor has stepped up to sponsor late-night Metro service in the District.
The last trains will depart Navy Yard Station at 12:22 a.m. – in the direction of Greenbelt – and at 12:48 a.m. – in the direction of Branch Ave. – or 30 minutes after the events conclude (whichever is later). Navy Yard Station will be the only available entry point during the extended service periods.
"Mastercard and Major League Baseball have partnered to connect baseball fans to their passion for the sport for over 20 years," said Cheryl Guerin, executive vice president, North America marketing and communications. "Knowing how important Metro is to the region, we were happy to step in with MLB to support extended service and help ensure that everyone attending the Home Run Derby and the All-Star Game has a truly Priceless experience."
Metro also announced 200,000 SmarTrip cards – with commemorative All-Star Week designs – will be loaded into specially marked vending machines, beginning with Navy Yard Station.
