#3 Forest Park Shuttle – Back in Time for Memorial Day!

Return to Blog

The Lindell Railway Pavillion, now known as the Dennis & Judith Jones Visitor Center in Forest Park. The Pavillion was originally built in 1892 as a streetcar shelter, and served as the gateway to the 1904 World's Fair. It is the second stop on the #3 Forest Park Shuttle.

Hoorah, the Forest Park Shuttle is back!

Stepping ahead of the other Restoration 2010 plans, the #3 Forest Park Shuttle will begin service Saturday, May 29 in time for the holiday weekend.  Forest Park is alive and blooming with trees, breezes, bikes and grass, so Memorial Day weekend is a great time to reintroduce yourself to a great cornerstone of St. Louis history and community.

Where does the Forest Park Shuttle go?

It travels the entire park in a complete circle, starting and ending at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Metrolink Station. It stops at all major attractions, including the Science Center Planetarium, the Zoo, Art Museum, Boathouse and Jewel Box. For all stop, see the Shuttle’s route map.

What times and how often does it run?

The Shuttle will run every 15 minutes from 9:45 a.m. to 6:45 p.m. daily. Check times on the route schedule.

How much does it cost?

The Shuttle is $2 for adults, $1 for seniors, disabled persons, and children 5-12. Children under five ride free.

Does my monthly Metro pass or transfer work as fare?

Yes! The Shuttle accepts all passes and transfers.

Can I bring my bike or stroller on board?

The Shuttle has a two-bike rack on the front, and can accommodate strollers. It is also wheelchair accessible.

Where do I catch the Shuttle?

You can catch the Shuttle at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station at the southbound bus shelters on DeBaliviere Avenue, or at any stop on it’s route in the Park.

Have a great Memorial Day St. Louis! Have fun exploring your region, and safe travels!

    WAY TO GO COURT!! I remember the first time we had the Forest Park Shuttle when it was route #2. That was when we had the funny-looking “ladybug” bus which was really an Orion II. I am glad to see the Orion Ii back in production. I remember the time we almost bought some for Call-a-Ride. the only downside to those if you were tall, you could barely fit behind the wheel. But they rode nice and smooth!
