Avoid 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 downtown or to the Delmar Loop. The Civic Center Transit Center, located at the intersection of 14th and Spruce Streets just south of the Scottrade Center, serves more than a dozen MetroBus routes. The Delmar Loop MetroLink Station serves five MetroBus routes. To plan your trip on public transit, use our handy Trip Planner.
