The pride of St Louis is the city's clean, efficient light rail
system called the MetroLink, 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 through downtown. Trains stop at multiple stations in
Missouri and Illinois before the line ends at Shiloh-Scott. A basic
MetroLink fare is $2.50.
The MetroBus network, which covers not only the city but also
most of the county, also serves St Louis. Buses run to schedule
from about 4am until after midnight. A basic bus fare is $2. There
are taxi ranks near most major hotels and attractions in the city,
while cabs can be ordered from various companies.
Those who opt for self-driving will find the city easy to
navigate, as the downtown streets are laid out in a grid pattern
and there is also a good network of highways. There is abundant
parking in high-rise garages.
