All - I have a trip planned in April to take the Texas Eagle from Ft Worth to St. Louis, and will need a car there for a few days. On past trips, I reserved at the Budget location located across the street from the Gateway station in a hotel. This time, I noticed that this location is showing as closing as of 3/20/17. Has anyone rented cars in St. Louis lately, and if so can you offer recommendations what would be a good option? As it is, I reserved a car at the Avis location located in the Westin hotel located about a mile from the station.
Bonus question, if I keep the Avis reservation the web site says it's near St Louis Union station, not sure if that means the old Union Station - if so how hard is it to catch light rail from Gateway to the old station?
