Downtown St. Louis will be hopping again tonight with Game 4 of the NLDS taking place at Busch Stadium. The Cardinals are in a must-win situation and with game time shortly after 5:00 tonight, fans have been descending on downtown all afternoon. Some Cards fans avoided the traffic and parking hassles last night and took MetroLink to Busch Stadium. We expect the same to be true tonight and the Agency is planning extra service for a second night to accommodate the crowds.
Metro managers will be assigned to several stations to assist passengers boarding the trains. After the game concludes, we will monitor the Busch Stadium MetroLink Station crowds to determine when extra Red or Blue trains will be added between regularly scheduled trains.
Metro asks that customers allow extra time and leave early for the ballpark if possible. Be patient, have fun, and cheer the Cards on to victory!
