Metro to Open Two Hours Early for ‘Race for the Cure’

WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – Metro will be opening its doors to passengers two hours ahead of schedule for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure on Saturday.

On Saturday, May 11, Metrorail will open at 5 a.m. The additional hours of service have been funded through an agreement with the event’s organizers.

Race participants traveling to the start line should use the following stations:

  • Metro Center (Red/Blue/Orange Lines)
  • Federal Triangle (Blue/Orange lines)
  • Smithsonian (Blue/Orange lines)

Metro advises customers to take note of scheduled weekend rebuilding work on the Red, Orange, Blue and Yellow lines that could affect their trip.

Additional Travel Tips:

  • Be sure to load enough far value on your SmarTrip or paper farecard for your entire roundtrip.
  • If using a paper farecard, remember to add $1 for each trip. To avoid this surcharge, use a SmarTrip card, which you can purchase at any Metrorail station.
  • Be sure to protect paper farecards from moisture during the race.
