Redbird Express

Welcome to the 2019 Red Bird Express Season. This popular Special Bus Service provided by SCCTD served more than 100,000 passengers in 2018. You may post comments or questions here.

Getting to the Game

Buses leave from: 134 St. Clair Square, Fairview Heights, Il, 62208, near the Water Tower. The 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.

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.

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. 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. 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

Ticket Purchase Options

Tickets can be purchased onsite at the Metro ticket kiosk at St. Clair Square (cash only) or through the Token Transit mobile app.
