Avoid 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 ride MetroLink to the Civic Center MetroLink Station (just steps from the Peabody Opera House and Scottrade Center), to the Delmar Loop MetroLink Station (near The Pageant), or to the Convention Center MetroLink Station (near the Dome at America’s Center).
You can also hop on MetroBus to get downtown or to the Delmar Loop. Ride on one of 18 MetroBus routes to the Union Station MetroLink Station, located just west of the Scottrade Center and the Peabody Opera House, and the #99 Downtown Trolley and #40 Broadway both have stops near the Dome at America’s Center. You can reach the Delmar Loop MetroLink Station on any of five MetroBus routes.
