Metro Adds Extra MetroLink Service for May 23Return to Blog
Downtown St. Louis will be the place to be on Monday night (May 23), and Metro will provide extra MetroLink service during the evening to make it easy for you to join all of the excitement in downtown as the St. Louis Blues take on the San Jose Sharks for Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Western Conference Finals, and the St. Louis Cardinals face off against the division rival Chicago Cubs.
Metro is a convenient way for sports fans to get to the games at the Scottrade Center and Busch Stadium, or to join thousands of other fans at pre-game rallies or at downtown sports bars and restaurants — all while avoiding heavy traffic and high-priced parking.
It’s easy. Just park your vehicle at any of the 21 free Park-Ride lots located at MetroLink stations in Missouri and Illinois, and purchase a round-trip ticket for $5. Ride the train to any of the six MetroLink stations serving downtown St. Louis, including the Stadium MetroLink Station outside of Busch Stadium, and the Civic Center MetroLink Station just steps away from the Scottrade Center.
If you’re headed to the Scottrade Center from the Civic Center Station, remember that the north pathway from the station is closed due to construction, so you will need to exit the MetroLink platform up the stairs to 14th Street and then head north to get to the Scottrade Center.
MetroBus is another great option for getting to downtown. Catch the #40 Broadway or #99 Downtown Trolley, which both have stops near Busch Stadium, or ride on one of 18 MetroBus routes to the Union Station MetroLink Station, located just west of the Scottrade Center.
