Celebrate Earth Day by adding some color to the MetroBus fleet at the St. Louis Earth Day Festival this Sunday in Forest Park. Festival attendees of all ages are invited to help paint two specially designed Earth Day murals onto a MetroBus that will transform the bus into a rolling work of art.

NEWS RELEASE
The Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station will be closed April 25 and April 26 due to the scheduled demolition of the DeBaliviere Bridge at Forest Park Parkway in St. Louis. MetroLink passengers should allow for 30-minute delays to be shuttled by bus between the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station, Central West End Station, Skinker Station and Delmar Loop Station that weekend. To accommodate crews preparing for the bridge demolition, MetroLink will operate on a single track during the evenings from April 20 through April 24. MetroLink passengers may experience brief delays on both the Red Line and Blue Line those nights. Some passengers may also need to board trains from the other platform during this work.

NEWS RELEASE
Demolition work on the DeBaliviere Bridge at Forest Park Parkway in St. Louis scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, April 25 and April 26, will impact Metro passengers. Because the weekend demolition work will occur above the MetroLink tracks at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station, trains will be unable to operate on that section of the light rail system from the start of Metro service Saturday (April 25) through the end of service Sunday (April 26.) MetroLink customers will be transported instead by bus shuttles between the Skinker, Delmar Loop, Forest Park-DeBaliviere and Central West End Stations. Passengers should plan ahead and allow for 30 minute delays.

NEWS RELEASE

The first home game of the season for the St. Louis Cardinals is Monday afternoon, April 13. Since the home opener is scheduled on a work day, parking in downtown St. Louis will be at a premium. The best bet for Redbird fans is to take MetroLink or MetroBus to the rallies and the game at Busch Stadium.
