5 minutes Date Launched: Mar 4, 2019
Metro Transit, which operates public transit in the St. Louis region—the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County in Missouri, and St. Clair County in Illinois—has partnered with Transit, a private trip-planning company, to make the Transit app the agency’s official trip planning app. Through the Transit app, travelers in the St. Louis region can access real-time transportation information, look up transit schedules, receive alerts, and plan multimodal trips. Within the app, Transit’s GO feature can help with navigation and the Transit+ feature enables users to plan and pay for first/last mile transportation services to connect them with local transit, such as MetroBus or MetroLink. Transit will also share usage data with Metro Transit. This partnership aims to enhance trip planning and transit use.
