Welcome to Your New Website

Welcome to the new Metro transit website.

As you may have noticed, it’s a little different around here. The new website brings the focus back to you, the Metro passenger, making it easy for you to plan a trip, view the latest MetroBus or MetroLink schedule and learn about any Rider Alerts that may impact your trip. We’ve given you the tools to travel and we can’t wait to see where you go.

Before you start your journey around the St. Louis region, we thought we’d give you a quick tour of the website.

Transit Tools: The first features you may notice are the three large circles that greet you as you first visit the site. These tools — Trip Planner, Schedules, Rider Alerts — are some of the most important tools to plan your trip. They’re so important that we’ve incorporated them on every page of the new website by way of the blue “Tools” bar located on the top of the page.

Streamlined Navigation: We know you’re going places, so we’ve made sure to keep the top navigation panel as simple as possible. We’ve reorganized the toolbar to provide you the information that matters most.

Highlighting You: Back on the homepage, when you scroll down, you’ll notice a large image carousel that you can scroll through to find the latest transit stories that matter to you. This is the spot to learn about the latest news regarding Metro projects and events and serves as one entryway into the blog —  which has moved over to the new site as well. Now, the transit conversation is in one place, right here, where you visit most.

And that’s the end of our quick tour of the new Metro website, but we’re here to help you along the way in case you have any additional questions. Give us a call at 314-982-1406 in Missouri or 618-271-7879 in Illinois or email us at metronews@metrostlouis.org. You also can let us know what you think about the new website by leaving a comment below.

We hope you enjoy the new website, but more importantly, we’re excited to see how you’ll use it for your next trip!

    I like the new website! Streamlined, brighter, bold, simple colors, and easier to navigate. Didn’t like the old one at all. I just needed to look up time schedules for busses it took too long and always showed up under trip planner which I didn’t need. I like the simple list of busses and numbers laid out in front of me and I can just click on it.

      LaWanda, we’re glad you like the new website!

    Were is the listing for the locations to purchase a bus pass?

    1. Matthew Hibbard says:

      We are in the process of updating the list of retail locations. For the most part, Metro fare is sold at ticketing vending machines at all MetroLink Stations, at select Schnucks locations and at the MetroStore downtown.
