Get Around


St. Louis City is divided into 79 distinct neighborhoods, plus all of St. Louis County. Many areas are walkable, but you can Uber just about anywhere you need to go.


The St. Louis Metro covers major destinations in and around the city, and our Bus system covers the entire area. Download the app for schedules and more.


If you only want to rent a car for a short trip, say to our Frank Lloyd Wright home or Laumeier Sculpture Park, you can rent someone’s car while they’re not using it with Turo.


There’s always the classic taxi option, especially if you’re coming from the Airport. You can even order one with an app.

Stay local in one of St. Louis’ many neighborhoods, from Downtown lofts, to historic homes in Soulard, to Dogtown bungalows for your morning run in Forest Park.
