Metro Transit is your ticket to convenient, easy access to get to baseball opening day festivities in downtown St. Louis on April 5. Thousands of baseball fans will be heading downtown for the St. Louis Cardinals home opener game at Busch Stadium. With rallies and special events planned throughout the day leading up to the evening game, Metro is a great option, not only for baseball fans, but for downtown St. Louis workers who want to avoid the traffic jams, road construction and parking challenges.
Baseball fans can leave their vehicles at any one of the 21 free Park-Ride lots located at MetroLink stations in Missouri and Illinois, purchase a $5 round-trip MetroLink ticket and ride to the Stadium MetroLink Station to get to Busch Stadium and Ballpark Village. Or they can take MetroLink to one of the other downtown MetroLink stations to enjoy pre-game rallies and activities.
MetroBus is another option for getting downtown to enjoy Opening Day. Fans can catch the #40 North Broadway or #99 Downtown Trolley routes, which both have stops near Busch Stadium, or ride on any one of 19 MetroBus routes to the Civic Center Transit Center, which is located a few blocks west of Busch Stadium. Metro will have additional security and staff located throughout the system to assist passengers.
