This week, Metro Transit began a six month program of offering its Metro Day Pass for just $5 – a 33 percent discount from the regular $7.50 price. With the $5 Metro Day Pass, transit riders can enjoy all the St. Louis region has to offer with unlimited rides on MetroLink and MetroBus for an entire day.
As the bi-state area continues to recover from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Metro Transit is excited to announce the new promotion that will make it easier for everyone to reconnect with all of the destinations they have missed going to over the last year.
For only $5, the Metro Day Pass provides an affordable an option to travel throughout the region, allowing for unlimited transfers and providing round trip travel that is more cost-efficient and easier to manage. Instead of a single trip to work, to a doctor’s appointment or to run an errand, transit riders can combine multiple rides on MetroLink and MetroBus to conveniently reach more destinations, connecting with shopping, education, attractions, restaurants and activities across the bi-state area – all for one low price.
The $5 Metro Day Pass will be available for purchase beginning on Monday, June 21, and is available as both a physical pass and a mobile pass on the Transit app, the official mobile app of Metro Transit. Transit is available for both iOS and Android devices. To download or learn more about the mobile app, visit metrostlouis.org/transit-toolbox. The $5 Metro Day Pass can also be purchased at some Schnucks stores throughout the region and at the MetroStore, located at the corner of 8th & Pine Streets in downtown St. Louis.
Day passes purchased at Schnucks or at the MetroStore will say Adventure Pass on them and customers just need to scratch off the date they are using the pass so they can enjoy unlimited transit rides on MetroBus and MetroLink for that day. Day passes can also be purchased at the Ticket Vending Machines at Metro Transit Centers and customers will select the date they plan to use the pass during the purchasing process. The promotion runs from now through Dec. 17, 2021.
Young people in the St. Louis area can also take advantage of discounted transit rides through the Gateway Go Card program. The Gateway Go Card provides half-price fares on MetroLink and MetroBus, and a special $80 summer pass for unlimited train and bus trips through the end of August, for anyone ages 13 to 25. The Gateway Go Card is available as a physical pass and a mobile pass on the Transit app.
To sign up for the Gateway Go Card or learn more about the program, visit metrostlouis.org/gatewaygo. Groups who wish to register multiple individuals for the Gateway Go Card should contact Metro at email@example.com or call 314-982-1500.
