Avoid traffic jams and parking fees by taking Metro. Leave your vehicle at any one of 21 free Metro Park-Ride lots in Missouri and Illinois and ride MetroLink to the Civic Center MetroLink Station (just steps from the Peabody Opera House and Scottrade Center) or to the Delmar Loop MetroLink Station (near The Pageant).
You can also hop on MetroBus to get downtown or to the Delmar Loop. Ride on one of more than a dozen MetroBus routes to the Union Station MetroLink Station, located just west of the Scottrade Center and the Peabody Opera House. You can reach the Delmar Loop on any of five MetroBus routes.
