Due to the COVID-19 crisis, several MetroBus routes are being supported by Metro Call-A-Ride vans, which do not have bike racks and cannot carry bikes. These routes include the #33 Midland, #46 Tesson Ferry, #65 Outer Forty, #71 Patterson-Redman, #101 Fenton Connector, #174X Halls Ferry Express. Please plan ahead for your bike commute if you rely on any of these MetroBus routes, and thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to provide service during this pandemic.
We’re big on two-wheelers because doubling-up your bike with Metro transit is eco-friendly, saves money and offers a fun way to exercise. When you ride the Metro transit system, you can store your bike on MetroBus bike racks, bring your bike on MetroLink or park it at one of our station bike racks. And don’t forget that many MetroLink stations and MetroBus routes connect to bike trails throughout the area, so you can take our rails to the trails and our buses to the bike paths. Fun!
(Sorry, non-electric motorized bicycles, scooters and motorcycles are not permitted.)
If you’re 13 or older, or a child accompanied by an adult, you’re welcome to bring your bike on MetroLink. Here’s what you do: After all the other passengers have boarded or exited the train, enter the train at the rear door of the first train car or the front or rear door of the second train car. Only two bicycles can be accommodated in each area. If a MetroLink train is too crowded, you might have to wait for the next train before boarding with your bike.
After you’ve boarded, please stand with your bike and don’t leave it unattended or put it on its kickstand (it could fall and hurt someone, or block the aisle).
In consideration of the safety of others, please be courteous and don’t ride your bike on station platforms (they’re not meant for bike riding). Instead, please walk your bike to the elevators or ramps, and carry it when on stairs.
We’ve equipped all MetroBus vehicles with a two-bike bike rack, available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Private bike share companies operate dockless bike share systems throughout the St. Louis region on sidewalks and bike racks for the public to use. Bikes are accessed via a smartphone app, with some discount options through packaged memberships and for students and low-income users. Bikes will be parked in the strip of the sidewalk between the main walking area and the street so they don’t block pedestrians, driveways or building entrances.
If you plan on riding one of these bikes to Metro Transit Centers, be sure to check the app to see where you should park your bike — at most transit locations, this will be at the bike racks or in an area with a sign indicating bike share parking.
