Mastercard Sponsoring of Late-night Service for the All-Star Game & Home Run Derby | News Release | WMATA

Metro today announced special late-night rail service following the T-Mobile Home Run Derby (Monday, July 16) and the 89th MLB All-Star Game presented by Mastercard (Tuesday, July 17). Mastercard is sponsoring the additional service, in partnership with Major League Baseball.

Fans attending either event are advised that the last trains will depart Navy Yard Station at 12:22 a.m. in the direction of Greenbelt and 12:48 a.m. in the direction of Branch Avenue OR 30 minutes after the end of the event, whichever is later. In the extra service period, only Navy Yard Station will be available for entry to the Metrorail system. All other stations will be exit only.

The agreement with Mastercard in partnership with MLB will cover the additional expenses associated with keeping the 234-mile, 91-station transit system open for the two nights to ensure that fans will be able to get home no matter what time the All-Star events end. Additionally, 200,000 SmarTrip® cards with All-Star Week designs will be loaded into specially marked vending machines, beginning with Navy Yard Station.
