CardinalsNation1Baseball fans who want to avoid the traffic jams before and after the National League Division Series (NLDS) games Monday and Tuesday between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Los Angeles Dodgers may want to consider taking public transit.

Free Park-Ride lots are located next to 21 MetroLink stations in Illinois and Missouri making it convenient to take MetroLink to the Stadium Station or to another nearby station in downtown St. Louis to get to the games.Fans can find out which MetroLink Park-Ride lot is the closest to where they live and plan their trips online by using the Trip Planner feature.

Metro will provide extra service for the games and additional security and staff members will monitor the MetroLink platforms and assist passengers before and after the games.

    Will service be extended should games go into extra innings for the NLDS and NLCS?

      Great question Kevin. Our practice is to extend service for one hour after the last out of the game so we don’t leave our customers stranded. We remind our customers in advance the MetroLink trains will run for an hour after the last out, if the game ends after our normal hours of service. We’ll monitor our MetroLink stations during baseball games and add service, or extend service hours, as needed.

    Why not limit stops on both lines and operate like the express bus routes. I’ve watched people attempt to squeeze onto west bound trains at the Grand stop. Also I got the feeling some riders at the Busch Stadium station jump on the first train going west and get off at the Forest Park station, if on the wrong train.
