NEWS RELEASE
Today, the Bi-State Development Agency/Metro unveiled the new name and design for the Gateway Smart Card that will begin being used by the public next year. An arch designed into the Gateway logo flows into a wave along the bottom depicting the Mississippi River.



The smart card is part of Metro's new fare collection system, a more convenient, secure way to pay Metro transit fares. Instead of paper tickets or passes, the Gateway Card will contain a computer chip that stores Metro passes or cash value. The fare is automatically deducted when customers tap their card on fare equipment each time they ride.

NEWS RELEASE
Fair Saint Louis is being held in Forest Park this year, and Metro transit is a great option for fairgoers, workers and volunteers who are looking for an easier way to get to the fair. To accommodate fairgoers, Metro will provide additional MetroLink service on Thursday, July 3; Friday, July 4 and Saturday, July 5.  MetroLink will operate additional trains in anticipation of large crowds at the annual celebration. Metro will NOT be operating bus shuttle services to or from Fair Saint Louis.



MetroLink



Two MetroLink stations are both within 6/10ths of a mile from the fairgrounds entrance: the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station and the Skinker MetroLink Station. Fairgoers taking a Red Line train between the Lambert Airport and Shiloh-Scott Stations should use the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station to access the fairgrounds, and to return to that station when they head home.



Fairgoers who travel on the Blue Line between the Shrewsbury Lansdowne I-44 and University City Big Bend MetroLink Stations should use the Skinker MetroLink Station, and then catch the train at that station when they head home.
