Return to Blog

DSC_0074The Metro Forest Park Trolley will officially return to Forest Park for the fifth season Friday, May 1, giving individuals visiting Forest Park a convenient method of navigating the Park, in addition to assisting to alleviate Park congestion.

The Metro Forest Park Trolley Service (MetroBus route #3) will operate daily between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. from May 1 through September 27, and will connect with all of the popular Park attractions, as well as the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station. The Metro #3 Forest Park Trolley will also provide service to select destinations (map below) within the Park between 6:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m.

Trolley tickets are $2 for adults, $1 for children (ages 5-12), seniors and disabled passengers, and the Trolley is free for children ages 4 and under. A valid Metro Reduced Fare permit is required for the Senior and Disabled discount. Two convenient Park N’ Ride options are available for visitors: the Twin Parking Lots across from the Dennis & Judith Jones Visitor and Education Center and the Festival & Parking Plaza at the Upper Muny. From these lots, visitors can hop aboard the Forest Park Trolley for a lift to their desired attraction.

    For riders coming from Delmar, the Trolley stops just outside the DeBaliviere garage (both directions) have always been convenient. However, recently, it seems that some drivers are not recognizing these stops and forcing passengers to get off at Pershing and DeBaliviere or further away. This is an inconvenience that does not appear to serve any purpose. Please ensure that the Forest Park Trolley stops at or outside the DeBaliviere garage at the designated stop locations (within the Metro property for buses going towards the park & on DeBaliviere Ave before the buses turn back into the garage).
    Thank you

      Deepa, the #3 Forest Park Trolley does not stop in front of our DeBaliviere garage. Are you referring to the #90 Hampton? Due to the Loop Trolley construction, the #3 Forest Park Trolley stop (originally located at our Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station) has temporarily moved to Pershing and DeBaliviere. Here’s the map:

    Will the #3 Forest Park Trolley run during Fair St. Louis on 4th of July weekend?
