We Are The Champions! Our Favorite Transit Photos from World Series Games in St. Louis

Return to Blog

How about them Cardinals! We know, everyone has worn out their best in red and spent the weekend traveling back and forth to downtown St. Louis to celebrate the boys of October. In fact, MetroLink had a record number of riders last week. An average weekday carries 50,000 people per day…Game 7 on Friday night saw 86,528 riders and 75,905 on Sunday for the Cardinals World Series Parade and Celebration, and Rams game. That means on Friday, MetroLink carried more people than those who live in Chesterfield, Hazelwood, and Bridgeton combined. Wow!

Here’s a collection of some of our favorite photos from home World Series games, and all St. Louis’ great baseball fans and transit riders. Thanks to everyone for the great ride.

    Just curious, what time did the last train run after the world series Friday? (Technically early Sat.) I know it was later than normal scheduling.

    1. Courtney says:

      Tim, the last westbound train at Stadium departed at 3:56AM and the last eastbound train departed at 3:35AM.

    Go Cards!

    It might take another visit from the “Rally Squirrel” for the Cardinals to win another World Series, before Metro provides late night service well beyond midnight. People will use public transit when and where it’s available, when people want to use it and need to use it. Good reliable public transportation provides cities with that boost of energy that helps cities to thrive, and not merely just survive.

    Maybe Metro should adopt that squirrel and rally for more convenient and reliable public transit for our region.
