Getting Around St. Louis

The pride of St Louis is the city''s clean, efficient light rail system, called the MetroLink, which is regarded as one of the best mass transit systems in the United States. Using the MetroLink visitors can see most of St Louis'' attractions without a car. The system''s zone covers the airport and East St Louis, stretching for 34 miles (55km) through downtown, trains stopping at 27 stations in Missouri and Illinois where the line ends at suburban Belleville. Fares are exceedingly cheap and rides are free between Laclede''s Landing and Union Station weekdays from 10am to 3pm. Shuttle services carry visitors from some MetroLink stations to nearby attractions. St Louis is also served by the MetroBus network, which covers not only the city but also most of the county, buses run to schedule from 4am to 2am. There are taxi ranks near most major hotels and attractions in the city, or cabs can be ordered from various companies. Those who opt for self-driving will find the city easy to navigate, the downtown streets laid out on a grid pattern and the city being served by a good network of highways.
