Bi-state area families are invited to join the mascots on the trip.

Along the way, special items will be given away to the kids. Children 4 and under ride free on MetroLink. Children 5 and older and adults must have a valid Metro ticket or pass to ride on MetroLink.
Child Safety Day features fun activities for children plus free bike helmets for kids (while supplies last) and flu shots for children and adults. The event is a great resource for parents and grandparents when it comes to information about keeping children physically, emotionally and socially safe.
The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, Missouri Highway Patrol, Clayton Police Department, St. Louis Fire Department, DEA, FBI Citizen’s Academy, St. Louis Cardinals, St. Louis Blues, St. Louis Rams, American Red Cross, St. Louis College of Pharmacy, Helmets First, Metro and the St. Louis Metropolitan Urban League are just a few of the many participants who are committed to keeping children safe.
Child Safety Day is free and is focused on teaching families in a fun environment how to stay safe on the street, safe in the car, safe on bicycles, safe around strangers, safe on the Internet and safe at home, especially during home emergencies like fires.
Metro will educate children about safety around trains–not playing or walking on the tracks and not trying to beat the train by walking or riding their bicycles around the warning gates. The Bi-State Development Agency/Metro is committed to improving the quality of life in the St. Louis region. In addition to providing excellent public transit and promoting economic development, MetroBus vehicles and MetroLink trains are designated as mobile safe places for children and adults who need help.
