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 service every 3 - 5 minutes.

*Please note* After the last bus leaves St. Clair Square - usually about 30 minutes prior to game start time - buses will no longer be running TO BUSCH STADIUM. 

The Redbird Express will drop you off curbside at the corner of Clark and Broadway!    Mere steps from Gates 5 and 6 - Closer than ever!

Returning to St. Clair Square -

Return to Clark Street between Broadway and 4th and our personnel will direct you to the next bus leaving and get you on your way back to St. Clair Square!  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.

It is important to us at the Transit District that all of our riders KNOW that as a Redbird Express rider, you are NEVER "stuck at the stadium" because you took the bus.  We take a lot of pride in the fact that only under the rarest of circumstances will a Redbird Express patron EVER wait more than 10-12 minutes before departing.  

*IMPORTANT*  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 needs to leave the Stadium 45 minutes after the game, so if you intend to "run the bases," or partake in "Christian Day" activities, you may need to leave before they are over in order to catch the last bus!

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

Last bus TO BUSCH STADIUM leaves 30 minutes prior to game times. 

Last bus TO ST. CLAIR SQUARE leaves Busch Stadium 45 minutes after official end of game!  

All Buses are wheelchair lift equipped and unload/load as close as possible to Busch Stadium (Gate 4).

 

HOME FROM THE GAME -

In 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 whenever they see fit.  Once there are enough passengers to warrant a return trip, a bus will return.  Always go to the front bus unless instructed otherwise by one of our representatives.

MOST IMPORTANT:  The last bus will return from the stadium 45 minutes after the official end of the game.

Round Trip Ticket Prices

Adults = $5.00

Children 2 - 12 years old = $2.00

Children under 2 = Free!
