MetroLink is just one part of our world-class, regional transit system, designed and engineered to get you there as you live, work and play. There’s an easier way - it’s Metro. Enjoy the ride.

Plan Your Trip

Use our online Trip Planner or download Transit, our official trip-planning app (available on the App Store and Google Play) to plan your trip from your mobile device. If you would like personal assistance or have any questions, contact Metro Transit Information directly at 314-231-2345 or 618-271-2345 (phone) or 314-207-9786 (text), Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Purchase Your Fare

You will need a current ticket, pass or transfer to ride MetroLink. Tickets and passes can be purchased at Ticket Vending Machines located at all MetroLink stations. Cash and coins are accepted, as well as Visa, Mastercard and Discover credit cards.

If your ride involves one trip on MetroLink, purchase a MetroLink One-Ride Ticket. It’s good for two hours in one direction, but only on MetroLink, not MetroBus.

If you plan to use both MetroLink and MetroBus, purchase a MetroLink Two-Hour Pass. The MetroLink Two-Hour Pass gives you unlimited use of the Metro system on both MetroLink and MetroBus, in any direction, for two hours.

A Metro One-Day Pass gives you unlimited use of the Metro system, on both MetroLink and MetroBus, for an entire day.

For more information on different types of fares, check out our Fare section on this website.

Validate Your Ticket

Certain MetroLink tickets come pre-validated with a time stamp, but some do not. Double check your ticket to make sure it has a time stamp, and if it doesn’t, insert it in one of the red validation machines located at all MetroLink station platforms.

Board Your Train

MetroLink operates two lines: the Red Line and Blue Line. The Red Line provides service between the Lambert Airport Terminal #1 MetroLink Station in Missouri and the Shiloh-Scott MetroLink Station in Illinois. The Blue Line provides service between the Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 MetroLink Station in Missouri and the Fairview Heights MetroLink Station in Illinois.

You can determine the direction and line of a MetroLink train by looking for the red or blue signs located on the front and sides of the train cars.

Both lines stop at all MetroLink stations between the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station and the Fairview Heights Station. Transfer to a different train at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station if you need to continue on another line.
