Although the St. Louis Blues will be in Boston for Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday, June 12, tens of thousands of hockey fans will converge on downtown St. Louis tomorrow night to cheer on the home team at watch parties at Enterprise Center, Busch Stadium, Ballpark Village and other downtown sports bars and venues. Metro Transit is a great option for everyone who wants to take part in the fun and festivities, safely and conveniently, while avoiding rush hour traffic on the highways and congested downtown streets.
Hockey fans can park at one of the 21 free Park-Ride lots at MetroLink stations in both Missouri and Illinois, and ride MetroLink to any of the six stations serving downtown St. Louis. For riders headed to one of the Game 7 watch parties in downtown, the Civic Center MetroLink Station is located just one block south of the Enterprise Center and the Stadium MetroLink Station is located right outside Busch Stadium and Ballpark Village.
Metro Transit will have extra security and personnel available throughout the MetroLink system to assist riders. MetroLink will monitor platforms and will be ready to add extra trains into service, if needed.
MetroBus is another option to get downtown St. Louis on June 12. Fans can catch any one of 18 MetroBus routes to the Civic Center Transit Center, located just south of the Enterprise Center, or hop on the #40 North Broadway or #99 Downtown Trolley, which both have stops near Busch Stadium and Ballpark Village.
