GRANITE CITY, ILL., August 8, 2013 . . . . An offense with potential, a lightning fast rookie wide receiver and hassle free bus service aboard the Madison County Transit (MCT) Rams Express give St. Louis Rams fans in Madison County a football season to look forward to. The MCT Rams Express provides bus service to and from every Rams home pre-season, regular season and post-season game at the Edward Jones Dome. Madison County fans can park at one of 13 convenient locations near their home and save the expense and frustration of tackling the traffic and parking in downtown St. Louis. The Rams Express kicks off Saturday, August 17 as St. Louis hosts the Green Bay Packers.

The Rams Express is $3.00 each way for adults (13 and older) and $1.50 each way for: children (ages 5-12), senior citizens (over 65) and persons with disabilities. Children under 5 are FREE. Fares for the Rams Express are paid at the time of boarding. Buses will drop-off on Cole Street (between 7th and 9th Streets), adjacent to the Dome 30 minutes before kick-off. The buses will depart from the same location 20 minutes after the end of the game.

Pick-up and drop-off locations for the Alton Rams Express include Alton Square (lower level), Alton Holiday Inn, Eastgate Plaza, Wood River Station, and Granite City Station; Edwardsville Rams Express stops include Edwardsville Station, Leclaire Junction, Cottonwood Mall, Maryville Park & Ride, and Gateway Convention Center in Collinsville; Highland Rams Express stops include Highland Park & Ride, St. Jacob Park & Ride, and Troy Park & Ride (all located on U.S. 40).

The NFL has adopted a new bag policy for all stadiums this year. Please be sure to visit the MCT Rams Express page at www.mct.org to learn about the new “clear bag” requirements as MCT will not allow for personal belongings to be left on the bus during the game. In addition no food, beverages, or coolers are allowed on the bus.
