Transexpress located at the main Terminal 12 at baggage claim, the cost is $17. one way or $28. round trip=$14. one way, which isn't a bad deal at all.

Hey guys dont forget about metrolink. it is our"subway" system in St. louis. It goes from the airport to downtown right by the convention center and its alot cheaper that the price you were quoted for the transportation. Just a thought. Trying to save you even MORE money!

Its not New York for goodness sakes LMAO it is a safe way to travel the city without the expense of a cab.Geeeezzzzzzzz lol. Many st. louisans use it daily to commute from the suburbs to the city for work. It's also a great way to get to the stadium and arena for sports.

Thanks for the info, I'll still stick with the shuttle, as it seems faster and more direct.

Metro link takes about 30 minutes to get downtown from the airport. Depending on what time your plane gets in the train may be faster. just a thought.

Metro Link is cheaper by far! And it goes straight to the convention center.

I know we were planning on taking the subway. It drops off 2 blocks from our hotel and the convention center, according to the information we could get online.

Can you post the link to the page you were looking at when you found that info? I went to the MetroLink site and hardly knew where to begin!

I will see if my better half can look it up again. She does all our travel research and booking.

I wrestled with the MetroLink website and came up with this:

http://tripfinder.metrostlouis.org/ntp/en/?#result_mark

You can adjust your times of departure and destinations, etc. (I recommend using the "Points of Interest" tab when searching. It was the easiest for me.)

Found this at the Lambert Airport site:

Passenger pickup for Metrolink:

Main Terminal: Exit Door MT1, upper level east of the American Airlines Credit Union
East Terminal: South of terminal accessible through the parking garage on all levels.

Folks we have saved money with this show here in St. Louis, take advantage of this, afterall not all of us have Million dollar budgets like Tyler!

p.s. Tyler are you hiring, I'm sure you could afford to hire some of us folks with the budget you have?

Why don't you just ride with Bill. He will drop you off at the hotel for free I am sure. It sounds like you are flying.

Remember we are not providing shuttle service between your hotel/convention center and our haunted house. Keep that in mind when you decide to rent a car or not. Personally I don't think you need a car everything is close by to the hotel. Our haunted house is 1.5 miles from the convention center.

I'm sure most people are driving themselves to St. Louis so rental cars are not needed. Just reminding everyone.

When the attraction is technically within walking distance no need for shuttles... it would be a long walk though. LOL

Its listed on the site with directions. They are not far apart. In a car it takes you like 5 minutes at most. Larry

Do you know if the hotel will call a cab for a guest?

drfrightner
03-18-2009, 03:35 PM
I'm sure. But this isn't New York. There isn't a cab on every corner. I'm sure everyone will be riding with other people. Just hitch a ride. The bus thing was unneeded since most who attend will drive in, and its just way to much of a mess. I saw the vegas deal last year what a mess dealing with all of those people. With the timed ticketing we have different times OMG that would have been a nightmare.

How is the parking for the darkness?

drfrightner

There is a big massive parking lot across the street but DO NOT leave anything in the car. We had a problem with that last year but I doubt it will happen because no one thinks we are open.

Last year we had a police person drive around the parking lot on patrol.

That fixed the problem. But you know how it is if you leave something in the front seat someone will try and take it.

We have done as many as 4,000 people in one night and had no parking problems. You can park all throughout Soulard.
