D.C. Metro, LivingSocial partner on late night service

Posted on September 28, 2012

LivingSocial, the local marketplace to buy and share the best things to do in your city, and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (Metro) signed an agreement to offer late-night Metrorail service for evening 2012 baseball postseason games in Washington, D.C.

 “We have a service agreement in place with LivingSocial to provide an additional hour of service for fans to get home following Nationals games during the entire postseason,” Metro GM and CEO Richard Sarles said. “We are delighted to be able to provide this service for Metro-riding baseball fans, thanks to LivingSocial, and we wish the Nationals the best of luck in the postseason.”

Under the terms of the agreement, which is standard for Metro late closings, LivingSocial will underwrite at least one hour and up to two hours of extended Metrorail service for all rides originating from Navy Yard-Ballpark station after home evening post-season games in October and November. (Extended hours only apply for Sunday through Thursday night games, as Metrorail already provides service until 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.)

LivingSocial will underwrite the cost of the late-night service and will receive reimbursement for a portion or all of those costs based on ridership during the extra hour(s). Specific details regarding extended service will be available on Metro’s website prior to each game.
