The month of May is usually when school ends and summer unofficially begins. Whether or not that’s the case for you, Metro transit is the best way to get you to and from events scheduled this month at some popular venues located near public transit.
The Scottrade Center will be the epicenter of activity this week, starting tonight with WWE Monday Night Raw. The professional wrestling event returns to St. Louis for the first time in over two years. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. From wrestling in the ring to playing on the rink, St. Louis Blues hockey returns to the Scottrade Center tomorrow night (May 3). The St. Louis Blues will face off against the Dallas Stars for Game 3 and for Game 4 in the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. If necessary, the Blues will play at the Scottrade Center for Game 6 on May 9. The series is currently tied 1-1.

Avoid road construction, traffic jams and the hassles of finding (and paying for) parking by taking Metro. Leave your vehicle at any one of 21 free Metro Park-Ride lots in Missouri and Illinois and take MetroLink to the Civic Center MetroLink Station (just steps from the Peabody Opera House and Scottrade Center) or the Delmar Loop MetroLink Station (near The Pageant).
You can also hop on MetroBus to get to downtown St. Louis or to the Delmar Loop. The Union Station MetroLink Station just west of the Scottrade Center serves 18 MetroBus routes. The Delmar Loop MetroLink Station serves five MetroBus routes. To plan your trip on public transit, use our handy Trip Planner.
