Metro will provide special bus shuttles on Saturday, January 7, for hockey fans taking MetroLink to the Scottrade Center for the St. Louis Blues game against the Dallas Stars.
MetroLink trains will not operate between the Forest Park-DeBaliviere and Central West End MetroLink Stations on Saturday, January 7, and Sunday, January 8 to allow the city of St. Louis to demolish a bridge over the MetroLink tracks west of Kingshighway.
Passengers will be transported by bus via MetroLink Station Shuttles between the two stations. However, to help hockey fans get to downtown St. Louis a little faster for the game, Metro will operate express MetroBus shuttles to provide direct service between the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station and the Scottrade Center.
The special express shuttles will leave the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station at 5:50 p.m., 6:10 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, January 7. Passengers can board the shuttles on southbound DeBaliviere Avenue, just outside of the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station. The shuttles will travel directly to downtown St. Louis and drop off hockey fans on 14th Street, outside of the Scottrade Center.
After the game, the shuttles will take hockey fans from the Scottrade Center back to the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station. Passengers will be able to board the shuttles on 14th Street between Clark and Spruce, near the Scottrade Center. The last shuttle bus will leave from the Scottrade Center 20 minutes after the end of the Blues-Stars game.
Metro will have signs directing hockey fans to the special shuttles at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station and Metro personnel will be at the station to assist passengers.
