Reminder: Metro Transit Service Updates and Special New Fare Programs Go Into Effect on June 21

On Monday, June 21, Metro Transit will make adjustments to 10 MetroBus routes and Metro Call-A-Ride service as part of a regular quarterly service change. In addition, Metro is also launching two new fare programs on June 21, making it easier and more affordable for transit riders to travel to their important destinations throughout the region.

On The Way With ADA

This new pilot program allows ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) paratransit customers to ride MetroLink and MetroBus for free. Qualified ADA paratransit customers can receive a special On The Way With ADA Gateway Card that is preloaded for free rides on all MetroLink trains and MetroBus routes. The pilot program runs from June 21 through December 17, 2021. For more information about the On The Way With ADA program, visit metrostlouis.org/ontheway.

$5 Metro Day Pass Promotion

Also beginning on June 21, Metro Transit is offering its Metro Day Pass for just $5, allowing transit riders to enjoy all the St. Louis region has to offer with unlimited rides in one day on MetroLink and MetroBus for one low price. The $5 Metro Day Pass is available as a mobile pass on the Transit app, and as a paper pass available for purchase at Ticket Vending Machines at Metro Transit Centers, some Schnucks stores and at MetroStore, located at the corner of 8th & Pine Streets in downtown St. Louis. The $5 Metro Day Pass promotion runs from June 21 through December 17, 2021.

Metro Call-A-Ride Resumes Fare Collection

On June 21, Metro Call-A-Ride will resume fare collection, which was temporarily suspended last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. ADA paratransit riders will pay $2 per trip, and exact fare is required.

June 21 MetroBus Adjustments

Metro monitors and reviews feedback from riders and drivers, and uses this feedback and other trip data to make updates to MetroBus service to improve on-time performance and for more efficient MetroLink and MetroBus connections.

All Metro Transit customers are encouraged to check metrostlouis.org, Transit app or contact Metro Transit Information for updated schedule and route information. Metro Transit Information is available Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 314-207-9786 (text) or 314-231-2345 (phone).
