RIDE ON to Mardi Gras FunReturn to Blog
Metro Transit makes it easy for everyone to enjoy all the fun and festivities of the Mardi Gras weekend.
Festival-goers can take advantage of free parking at more than 20 Park-Ride lots in Missouri and Illinois and let MetroLink bring you closer to all the action. The Stadium MetroLink Station is a short walk from the start of the Grand Parade Route at Busch Stadium and about a mile from the heart of Soulard.
If you’d like to travel without worrying about traffic, parking or walking long distances, grab a ride on MetroBus route #30 Arsenal or the #73 Carondelet both serving stops near Soulard. Please note that the #30 Arsenal will be operating on a reroute due to Mardi Gras road closures, so be sure to check our Rider Alerts before you leave.
Reminders before you ride:
- Bottles, cans and coolers are not permitted at Soulard Mardi Gras festivities, and alcohol is not permitted on Metro Transit vehicles or on Metro Transit property.
