Tens of thousands will pack the streets of downtown St. Louis on Sunday, October 6, and Monday, October 7, to watch the St. Louis Cardinals face off against the Atlanta Braves for Games 3 and 4 of the National League Division Series. Metro Transit is the perfect option to enjoy all of the postseason excitement without worrying about traffic on the highways, crowded downtown streets and finding (and paying for) a place to park.
Sports fans can park at one of the 21 free Park-Ride lots at MetroLink stations in both Missouri and Illinois, and ride MetroLink to the Stadium MetroLink Station to reach Busch Stadium or the festivities at Ballpark Village, or to one of the five other stations serving downtown St. Louis for watch parties, rallies and other events. MetroBus is another convenient option – fans can ride on one of more than a dozen MetroBus routes to the Civic Center Transit Center, located just a couple blocks west of Busch Stadium.
Due to large crowds expected in downtown St. Louis for these games, Metro will have extra security and personnel on hand to assist passengers. MetroLink Operations will monitor platforms and will be ready to add extra trains into service, if needed.
