2018 SEASON IS HERE!

*SPECIAL NOTICES* 

 

Welcome to the 2018 Red Bird Express Season. We are thankful to all of our loyal riders . We served more than 200,000 passengers in 2017 on the Red Bird Express. Go Cards! We love to get feedback about our service, please feel free to call or email us anytime of the year.

Remember even if you are not going to the game, but still want to head downtown to enjoy the fun, ride the Red Bird. There's no better way to get to Ballpark Village on game days, especially during the playoffs.

Plan Ahead. If you have a large group (25+) planning to take the Redbird Express, please take a second to email us advanced notice in case there is a way we can better serve your group's needs. Sit back and enjoy your ride.

GETTING TO THE GAME -

Buses leave from: 134 St. Clair Square, Fairview Heights, Il, 62208, near the Water Tower. First bus leaves 2 1/2 hours prior to game time with frequent service up to 40 minutes prior to first pitch.

The Redbird Express will drop you off curbside at the corner of Clark and Broadway – a few steps from Gates 5 and 6.

Returning to St. Clair Square -

Return trips will originate on Clark Street between Broadway and 4th. If you are ONLY riding home with us but did not ride TO the game with us (perfectly acceptable and quite common), simply hand the SCCTD employee $5.00 in place of your return ticket.


Please note that there are numerous games with post-game extracurricular activities, and we CANNOT accommodate everybody who wants to stay for every event. Our last bus leaves Busch Stadium to return to St. Clair Square 45 minutes after the official end of the game.

 

IIn the event of an early exit (rain delay, extra innings, heat related, etc...), passengers always have the option to exit the stadium and board the bus to return. Buses will depart as soon as they have a near capacity load.

IMPORTANT ITEMS TO REMEMBER
All Fares are round trip only even when only riding one-way. Cash fares only. No passes, tickets, or transfers accepted on Special Service.


All Buses are wheelchair lift equipped and unload/load as close as possible to Busch Stadium (Gate 5 & 6).

Round Trip Ticket Prices

Adults = $5.00

Children 2 - 12 years old = $2.00

Children under 2 = Free!
