Metro Transit is Your Ticket to Weekend Fun RIDE ON to Battlehawks, Cardinals and Earth Day Festivities

The bi-state region will be busy this weekend as thousands of sports fans, families and other visitors travel to downtown St. Louis to watch the St. Louis Battlehawks and St. Louis Cardinals compete, or head to Forest Park to enjoy the celebration at the St. Louis Earth Day Festival. Metro Transit is a convenient, affordable and environmentally-friendly option for anyone who wants to enjoy all of the weekend fun without worrying about heavy traffic, road closures and finding somewhere to park.

Downtown St. Louis – St. Louis Battlehawks and St. Louis Cardinals

Sports fans will fill downtown St. Louis this weekend as the St. Louis Cardinals take on the Milwaukee Brewers at Busch Stadium Friday evening and Saturday and Sunday afternoons, and the St. Louis Battlehawks face off against the Memphis Showboats Saturday morning at The Dome at America’s Center.

Those headed to the game can park their vehicle for free at any of 21 Metro Park-Ride lots located at MetroLink stations in Missouri and Illinois, purchase a round-trip MetroLink ticket for just $5 and ride to the Convention Center MetroLink Station (located right next to The Dome at America’s Center) for the St. Louis Battlehawks game, or ride to Stadium MetroLink Station (located right outside of Busch Stadium and Ballpark Village) to watch the Cardinals.
