Xfinity will pay the $100,000 to keep the Metrorail system open an extra hour Monday for fans going to Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final.
Monday’s game between the Washington Capitals and the Vegas Golden Knights is scheduled for 8 p.m.
“We are proud to partner with Metro and Mayor (Muriel) Bowser to ensure our fellow Caps fans can use Metro to get home safely following the game,” Comcast Senior Vice President of the Beltway Region Mary McLaughlin said. Xfinity is a brand of Comcast, which is NBC4's parent company.
Others have stepped in to cover the cost of Metrorail staying open past 11:30 p.m. for previous home playoff games played in primetime. Pepco’s parent company, Exelon, sponsored the late service after Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Tampa Bay Lightning May 15, the DowntownDC Business Improvement District made a deal with Qatar to foot the bill following Game 4 a couple of nights later, and Uber paid for it after Game 6 last week.
