Getting to St. Louis

The nearest airport is Lambert-St. Louis International Airport (STL).

Local transportation:

Taxi: About 30 dollars each way to/from airport. Two local cab companies are County Cab (314.991.5300) and Laclede Cab (314.652.3456).


Metrolink: The Metrolink trains can be used to travel between the airport and campus. There are two metrolink stations near campus (the "Skinker station" is closer to the math department, the "Big Bend station" is closer to the dorms). The dorms are 0.6 miles from the Big Bend station. From the airport, take the (Red) train to the Forest Park-DeBaliviere station, get off and switch to the (Blue) train going in the direction of “Shrewsbury.” Take this train one stop to the Skinker Station (to be close to the math department) or two stops to the Big Bend Station (to be closer to housing). Fare is $4 from the airport.

Airport shuttle discount: Since it is bit of a walk from the Big Bend station to the dorms, some participants may want to take an airport shuttle. We have negotiated a price of $17 each way. To reserve a shuttle at the discounted rate, you must use this link: Shuttle Reservation
