The Muny Explorer Will Be Back in Service for Those Heading to The Muny in Forest Park This Summer
Leave the stress of crowded streets and parking hassles behind, and enjoy drama, music, laughter and thrills under the night sky this summer with the Muny Explorer. The #3X Muny Explorer (formerly the Muny Trolley) returns to Forest Park this year to provide theater and musical lovers with direct, convenient service between the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Transit Center and The Muny in Forest Park. The special service is available for all 51 of The Muny’s scheduled performances from June 10 to August 11. The season kicks off on June 10, with Guys and Dolls.
Prior to each show, the Muny Explorer will operate every 20 minutes from 7 p.m. to 8:40 p.m. between the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Transit Center and The Muny. The Muny Explorer will provide return trips to the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Transit Center for 20 minutes after the show ends, and will also be available to take Muny-goers back to the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Transit Center immediately after any performances that are shortened by inclement weather.
Muny Explorer riders can take advantage of free parking at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Transit Center, or park at one of the 20 other free Park-Ride lots in Illinois and Missouri, purchase a round-trip ticket for $5 to ride MetroLink to the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Transit Center, and then connect with the Muny Explorer.
The cost for a round-trip ticket on the Muny Explorer is $2 for adults, $1 for children ages 5 to 12 and free for children 4 and under. Tickets can be purchased on the Explorer at the time of boarding, or in advance using the Metro Mobile app. As part of a pilot program, the new fare-purchasing app allows visitors to purchase Explorer tickets directly from their mobile device. Customers can purchase a Forest Park Explorer ticket on the Metro Mobile app and use it for their Muny Explorer trip. Metro Mobile is available for iOS and Android devices.
