You can also hop on MetroBus to get downtown or to the Delmar Loop. Ride on one of more than a dozen MetroBus routes to the Union Station MetroLink Station, located just west of the Scottrade Center and the Peabody Opera House, or take a ride on the #99 Downtown Trolley to get near Kiener Plaza. You can reach the Delmar Loop on any of five MetroBus routes.
