Photos, videos – even selfies – are fun ways to commemorate your trip on Metro, just remember to follow a few simple rules.

You are allowed to use your handheld camera or phone to take photographs or shoot video within public areas of MetroLink stations, Metro Transit Centers and in Metro transit vehicles for personal and non-commercial use. In fact, we’d love to see your transit photos! Share them on Twitter or Instagram, and tag your photo with #stlmetro.

Here are some rules to remember when taking photos or video on the Metro system:

News Media and Commercial/Professional Photography

Journalists, photographers and videographers who wish to take photos, film or video for commercial/professional use – or anyone who needs to set up tripods, lights or other equipment on Metro property – must first contact the Metro Communications Department for approval. You may be required to sign a permit and provide a certificate of insurance 7-10 business days prior to the proposed shoot.

Contact Metro Communications at 314-982-1440 (314-486-5553 after work hours) or email for more information.
