One option fans have is direct Metrorail service to FedEx Field. The Morgan Boulevard Metrorail station on the Blue Line is the closest station to FedEx Field. The station is nine-tenths of a mile from the stadium and a new walkway offers direct access to the stadium. The Largo Town Center Metrorail station, also on the Blue Line, is one mile away from the stadium.
Parking Procedures at Morgan Boulevard and Largo Town Center
Non-Metrorail patrons who park at the Morgan Boulevard and Largo Town Center Metrorail stations to attend special designated events at FedEx Field will be required to pay $25 via their SmarTrip® cards.
Metro's premium parking program requires Metrorail riders who park at the Morgan Boulevard or Largo Town Center Metrorail stations during events at FedEx Field to use a SmarTrip® card to exit during events because the SmarTrip® card allows Metro to charge rail customers using the station for transit to park and pay the regular parking rate ($4.25 on weekdays) or park for free on weekends.
For non-Metrorail patrons parking at these facilities who do not have a SmarTrip® card, Metro personnel will be on hand at each game to sell a SmarTrip® card for $30, which includes a $5 fee for purchasing the card. Metro encourages fans to keep these cards for future use, either to use the rail system or to use at these parking facilities if they wish to park there again. Metro also encourages customers to register the SmarTrip® card online for protection in case of loss or theft.
Appropriate signage at these parking facilities, along with personnel from several Metro departments including Metro Transit Police, will be available to assist fans with questions on parking procedures.
The non-Metrorail patron fee is in place three hours prior to event time and remains in effect until two hours after the event. This fee ensures that a premium market-based parking fee is charged to patrons attending these events.
Normal events are scheduled to end before midnight, allowing adequate time to use Metrorail. When the occasional delay or overtime game occurs, Metrorail service will be extended. Convenient Metrorail service is available at several stations around the Verizon Center to relieve congestion. The Metrorail stations are:
Red, Yellow, and Green
Red, Orange, and Blue
Yellow and Green
