It’s almost the weekend, and for music fans that can only mean one thing – LouFest is ready to kick off its two-day music festival in Forest Park.
Metro is your ticket for getting to all of the excitement without having to worry about parking or Forest Park traffic. Metro will operate special LouFest MetroBus shuttles this weekend to transport concert-goers directly between the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station and the north entrance of the LouFest grounds at the corner of Grand and Faulkner Drive in Forest Park. The LouFest Shuttle pick-up and drop-off area is located just north of the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station on the west side of DeBaliviere Avenue.
Concert-goers can park at any one of 21 free Metro Park-Ride lots in Missouri and Illinois and ride MetroLink to the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station to connect with the LouFest Shuttles, or ride the #1 Gold or #90 Hampton MetroBus routes to reach the station.
The shuttles will operate every 10 minutes from noon to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 12, and on Sunday, Sept. 13, and will operate as frequently as needed after 8 p.m. as concert-goers head home from LouFest both nights. The LouFest Shuttle is free for passengers who show their LouFest ticket, and will cost $2 for riders who do not have a LouFest ticket. The LouFest shuttle pass is not valid for regular MetroBus or MetroLink service.
