What if I don’t have a smartphone?

You can still take advantage of this program without a smartphone. Contact Metro Transit Information and we can help set up your $1 Lyft trip – call 314-231-2345 to get started.

Program Details

$1 Lyft trips are only available to make connections between the selected areas and Metro Transit centers or MetroBus stops. You must have or purchase a valid fare to continue your trip on MetroLink or MetroBus.

If you don’t have a smartphone or require a wheelchair-accessible vehicle, you can take advantage of the program by calling 314-231-2345 to have a Metro Transit specialist assist with scheduling your trip.

Customers can include up to three additional people with them on their discounted Lyft trip for the same $1 cost. Children 17 and under are welcome to join an adult on their Lyft trip, but are not permitted to ride alone in a Lyft vehicle.

The $1 Lyft trip pilot program is made possible through a partnership between Metro Transit and Lyft. To offer this discount to transit users, Metro will cover the cost of eligible Lyft trips up to $12. If a customer schedules an eligible Lyft trip that exceeds $12, the customer is responsible for the remaining balance. During the program, Metro customers can use the discount code for a maximum of 40 Lyft trips per month.
