Metro makes it easy to get to the Stanley Cup Playoffs, while avoiding sitting in traffic and finding parking, as hockey fans come to downtown St. Louis to watch the St. Louis Blues take on the Minnesota Wild on Sunday, April 16, and Wednesday, April 19.
Fans headed to the games at Scottrade Center, pre-game rallies and to downtown sports bars and restaurants are encouraged to park at any of the 21 free Park-Ride lots located at MetroLink stations in both Missouri and Illinois. Then after purchasing a round-trip MetroLink ticket for $5, they take the train to any of six downtown MetroLink stations. The Civic Center MetroLink Station is located at 14th Street and Spruce Street, just steps away from the Scottrade Center.
MetroBus is another good option for getting to downtown St. Louis for playoff hockey action. Fans can ride on one of more than a dozen MetroBus routes to the Union Station MetroLink Station, located just west of the Scottrade Center.
