Riding Metro

Bike & Ride

Combining biking with Metro is a great way to get around more easily and get you where you need to go.  Riding your bike also helps reduce your oil consumption and increases physical activity.  You can use the bike racks on Metro buses, bring your bike on MetroLink, park your bike at one of our station bike racks, and many MetroLink station and MetroBus routes link up to the bike trails and systems throughout the region.  Please take some time to understand how to use bikes with Metro.

Bikes on MetroLink

 Bike and Ride

Passengers ages 13 and older can transport a bike on MetroLink (or any age when accompanied by an adult). After all passengers have entered or exited the train, please enter the train at the rear door of the first train car or the front or rear door of the second train car. Only one bike is permitted in each area. If a bike is in the area you have chosen, please move to another area or wait for the next train. Do not ride bikes on station platforms. Walk with your bike to the elevator, ramp, or carry  it on the stairs. Do not use the kick stand or leave your bike. Non-electric Motorized bicycles, scooters and motorcycles are not allowed.

 Bikes on MetroBus

Missouri and Illinois MetroBuses are equipped with a two-bike rack available on first-come, first-served basis.
