Heading to Mardi Gras this weekend!  Us too!  Take Metro shuttles to the Soulard Mardi Gras and avoid the hassles of finding a place to park that isn’t knee-deep in cleared snow and two miles from Broadway.  Saturday, February 13, the Soulard Mardi Gras MetroBus Shuttle will offer round-trip service to the festivities from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.

The Soulard Mardi Gras MetroBus Shuttle will run continuously between 14th & Spruce, near the Civic Center MetroLink Station, and 10th Street in Soulard, between Marion & Carroll. Passengers may board or deboard the shuttle at 14th & Spruce and at 10th Street.

Shuttle bus tickets will be on sale at the Civic Center MetroLink Station, and other select MetroLink stations, including:
