Take Metro Transit to the 2020 NHL All-Star Game & Festivities

Tens of thousands of hockey fans will pack the streets this weekend as St. Louis hosts the 2020 NHL All-Star Game. Festivities and events are scheduled from Thursday, January 23 through Sunday, January 26, and Metro Transit makes it easy to enjoy all of the fun and excitement without getting stuck in traffic on highways and crowded downtown streets, or finding a place to park.

MetroLink

MetroLink provides direct connections to all of the NHL All-Star games, events and activities taking place throughout downtown St. Louis.

  • NHL All-Star Game (Jan. 25) and Skills Competition (Jan. 24) at Enterprise Center – Civic Center MetroLink Station
  • Pregame Events and Concerts (Jan. 24-25) at 14th & Market Streets – Civic Center MetroLink Station
  • NHL Fan Fair (Jan. 23-26) at Union Station – Union Station MetroLink Station
  • NHL events at Kiener Plaza (Jan. 24-26) – 8th & Pine MetroLink Station

Metro Transit will have extra security and personnel available to assist passengers during the NHL All-Star Game weekend.

Sports fans can park their vehicles at any of the 21 free Metro Park-Ride lots at MetroLink stations in Missouri and Illinois, and hop on the train to any of the stations in downtown St. Louis. A round-trip ticket on MetroLink is just $5. Tickets can be purchased at Ticket Vending Machines located at every station, or directly from a mobile device using the Metro Mobile app. Transit riders can download the app and purchase the Hockey Pass, valid for round-trip MetroLink service to all of the NHL All-Star games and activities. The mobile Hockey Pass is only valid for a single day; transit riders attending multiple days of festivities need to purchase a Hockey Pass for each day.

MetroBus

MetroBus is another great option for getting to all of the all-star hockey action. Fourteen MetroBus routes serve the Civic Center Transit Center, located just south of Enterprise Center and pregame events at 14th and Market Streets, and just east of the NHL Fan Fair at Union Station. The #40 N. Broadway route serves stops near events and activities taking place at Kiener Plaza. A one-ride fare on MetroBus is $2, and a 2-Hour Pass (good on MetroLink and MetroBus) is $3. Fares can be purchased onboard the bus — exact change is required.

For help planning a Metro Transit trip to NHL All-Star Weekend, sports fans can download the Transit app to their mobile devices, use the Trip Planner on metrostlouis.org, or contact Metro Transit Information, available Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 314-231-2345 (phone) or 314-207-9786 (text).
