Metro Transit-St. Louis has partnered with Lyft to offer MetroLink rail riders discounted ride-hailing options to make connections between select streets, transit centers or bus stops.

Beginning in January 2020 and continuing on a three-month trial period, riders can use a promotional code on the Lyft mobile application to take eligible trips for $1. 

Riders can be accompanied by up to three people on their discounted Lyft trip, and can use the discount code on a maximum of 40 Lyft trips per month, Metro Transit-St. Louis officials said on the program webpage. 

Metro Transit-St. Louis is covering the cost of eligible Lyft trips up to $12. If a rider schedules an eligible Lyft trip that exceeds $12 in value, the customer is responsible for the remaining balance in addition to the initial $1 charge.
