There are two exciting charity events happening in the St. Louis area that could impact your commute this weekend and Metro will be providing special shuttles for one of the events.
Light The Night will take place at the Central Field in Forest Park this Saturday at 5:30 p.m. The event is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s evening fundraising walk to celebrate and commemorate lives touched by blood cancers. Participants walk a two-mile route carrying different color lanterns to signify cancer survivors, supporters and those lost by the disease.
Participates attending Light The Night can take the #90 Hampton or take a MetroLink train to the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station.
Metro transit will provide special MetroBus shuttles before and after the event. The shuttle will stop at several locations in the park, as well as the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station. The free shuttle service will begin at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station at 4:50 p.m.
This weekend is also the annual Pedal The Cause fundraiser. The event, which also helps raise money to treat cancer, will take place in Forest Park and in Downtown St. Louis, and that may impact your MetroBus route.
