Extra MetroLink Service for Playoff Hockey Action and Baseball on May 17
Metro will provide extra MetroLink service during the evening on Tuesday, May 17, making it easy to take in the excitement of the Stanley Cup Conference Finals as the St. Louis Blues take on the San Jose Sharks, or baseball action at Busch Stadium as the St. Louis Cardinals face off against the Colorado Rockies. Metro is a convenient way for sports fans to get to the games, to pre-game rallies, and to downtown sports bars and restaurants while avoiding heavy traffic and high-priced parking options.
Fans can park at any of the 21 free Park-Ride lots located at MetroLink stations in both Missouri
and Illinois, and purchase a round-trip MetroLink ticket for $5 to ride to any of the six MetroLink stations serving downtown St. Louis, including the Stadium MetroLink Station outside of Busch Stadium and the Civic Center MetroLink Station, just steps away from the Scottrade Center. Passengers headed to the Scottrade Center from the Civic Center Station should note that the north pathway from the station is closed due to construction, so they will exit the MetroLink platform up the stairs to 14th Street and then head north to get to the Scottrade Center.
MetroBus is another great option for getting to downtown St. Louis. Sports fans can catch the #40 Broadway or #99 Downtown Trolley, which both have stops near Busch Stadium, or ride on one of 18 MetroBus routes to the Union Station MetroLink Station, located just west of the Scottrade Center.
