LouFest returns to Forest Park on September 12 and September 13 this year, and Metro makes it easy for concert-goers to enjoy the music, fun and excitement of the two-day festival while not having to worry about parking or traffic. Metro will operate special LouFest MetroBus Shuttles that weekend to transport music fans directly between the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station and the north entrance of the LouFest grounds at the corner of Grand and Faulkner Drive in Forest Park.
Concert-goers can park at any one of 21 free Metro Park-Ride lots in Missouri and Illinois and ride MetroLink to the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station, or ride the #1 Gold or #90 Hampton MetroBus routes to connect with the station. The LouFest Shuttle pick-up and drop-off area is located just north of the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station on the west side of DeBaliviere Avenue.
The shuttles will operate every 10 minutes from noon to 8 p.m. on Saturday, September 12, and on Sunday, September 13, and will operate as frequently as needed after 8 p.m. as concert-goers head home from LouFest both nights. The LouFest Shuttle is free for passengers who show their LouFest ticket, and will cost $2 for riders who do not have a LouFest ticket.
