Ride Metro Transit to the St. Louis Blues Home OpenerReturn to Blog
Hockey returns to the St. Louis region this weekend as the St. Louis Blues kickoff their season on Saturday, October 15, against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Metro Transit is a great option to enjoy the opening night pre-game rally and the home opener at the Enterprise Center, while avoiding crowded streets, road construction and parking hassles.
The festivities begin with a special 2022 Opening Night Rally at St. Louis Union Station. The rally begins at 3 p.m. at the Purina Performance Plaza at Union Station featuring live music, fun activities, face painting, food and drinks, and more. The big game against the Columbus Blue Jackets begins at 7 p.m. at the Enterprise Center, located just down the street from the pre-game rally.
Metro makes it easy for you to enjoy all of the fun and festivities of the NHL season. Park your vehicle at any one of 20 free Metro Park-Ride lots at MetroLink stations in Illinois and Missouri, purchase a $5 Day Pass and ride MetroLink to Union Station for the Opening Night Rally or to the Civic Center Transit Center for the home opener at Enterprise Center, located just one block north of the transit center.
MetroBus is also a great option to get to Blues games throughout the year with more than a dozen MetroBus routes serving the Civic Center Transit Center, including the #4 Natural Bridge, #10 Gravois-Lindell, #11 Chippewa, #19 St. Louis Ave., #30 Arsenal, #31 Chouteau, #32 Dr. ML King, #40 North Broadway, #41 Lee, #73 Carondelet, #74 Florissant, #94 Page and #97 Delmar.
Public Safety and Metro Transit personnel will be available throughout the transit system to assist passengers. As trains and platforms may be crowded before, during and after the games, please allow extra time for your commute and pay close attention to children and others you are traveling with so you do not get separated.
Please note that Blue Line MetroLink service is currently only operating between the Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 and Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Stations due to damage from unprecedented flooding in July. Blue Line passengers will need to exit their Blue Line train at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station and transfer to an eastbound Red Line train to continue their trip to downtown St. Louis.
