The Gateway Go Card is an exciting new option to make it easier for young people in the bi-state region to take Metro Transit to get where they need and want to go this summer.
It’s about connecting young people to more opportunities. Investing in our youth is important for the future of our region, and all of the partners in this pilot program are committed to improving the quality of life for young people in our community.
Transportation is a vital link to jobs, schools, health care, healthy food options, and better wages. Providing access to transit through reduced fares means access to opportunities. When we work together, we make it easier for young people to pursue their dreams and to pave the way for successful lives and careers.
The Gateway Go program will run from June 1 to August 31 and is made possible through a partnership between the City of St. Louis, St. Louis County, St. Clair County Transit District, St. Louis Economic Development Partnership, Metro Transit and Bi-State Development.
The special pass will offer mobility and new opportunities through public transit for youth ages 13 to 25 at half the normal price.
