Lofty expectations for this year’s Washington Nationals mean more fans, and more fans mean a business opportunity for a pair of North Bethesda residents who started a late night shuttle service from Bethesda last year.
Brandon Yu and Alex Middel, founders of The DC Hopper, are partnering with Caddies On Cordell (4922 Cordell Ave.) to provide direct pregame and postgame transportation to Nationals Park for select weekend home games starting with the Nats’ first weekend home game against the Atlanta Braves on Saturday, April 13.
The cost to skip transferring lines and waiting for weekend service on the Metro is $24.
The shuttle will leave Caddies at 11 a.m. or 11:30 a.m. depending on first pitch and depart Nationals Park 30 minutes after the last out.
“Unlike our Nightlife Shuttle service, we are gearing this transportation for fans of all ages,” Yu said. “We want this to be a family friendly ride to Nats Park for the games.”
