Forest Park Trolley Ridership Up This Season
From celebrating Fair Saint Louis to hosting LouFest and other annual celebrations, Forest Park was the place to be this summer and the #3 Forest Park Trolley was the mode of transportation to get customers to and from their favorite attractions inside the park.
All of these exciting events helped grow ridership on the #3 Forest Park Trolley this season compared with the 2013 season. The trolley kicked off its season May 3 with new buses and an updated look, which included a whimsical window graphic design. Colorful images related to Forest Park, such as a dinosaur, representing the Saint Louis Science Center and a giraffe, representing the Saint Louis Zoo, were also featured on the #3 Forest Park Trolley.
The Trolley operated in Forest Park this summer season from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. from May 3 through Sept. 28 with expanded hours from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. Adult fares are $2 per adult to ride the #3 Forest Park Trolley. Children ages 5 to 12, seniors and disabled passengers can ride for $1. The trolley ended it’s seasonal service Sept. 28.
The #3 Forest Park Trolley connects all the park attractions with the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station. It is a partnership between Forest Park Forever, Bi-State Development Agency/Metro, Saint Louis Art Museum, Saint Louis Science Center, Saint Louis Zoo, and the City of St. Louis.
