Traveling by St. Louis public transit with a small dog
Metro operates bus (MetroBus) and light rail (MetroLink) systems in and around St. Louis, MO. Only service animals are allowed on Metro’s buses and trains.
Madison County Transit (or “MCT”), operates a bus system in Madison County, IL, located to the northeast of St. Louis. MCT also operates a weekday express bus service connecting Madison County with downtown St. Louis, as well as a regional bus service connecting Madison County with MetroLink and downtown St. Louis. The customer service representative I spoke to told me that small dogs in carriers are allowed on MCT buses, for no extra fee.
