Created to inspire St. Louis area seniors, as well as any other interested individuals, to see how easy it is to integrate walking with public transit use to get around town, the CMT Ten Toe Express Walk Program also promotes the health and well-being benefits of transit commuting. The 2017 Fall session gets underway on Thursday, September 7 in partnership with AARP in St. Louis. Register today!
The 12-week spring session will run from September to the end of November. Ten Toe participants gain access to a variety of helpful resources including walk maps providing detailed directives on how to utilize transit to get to many of the region’s cultural and entertainment hot spots. Participants also have the ability to take part in weekly guided Ten Toe Express Walking Tours which allow walkers to be part of a group as they become familiar with the transit system and how to utilize it to get to destinations. These walks, led by trained, volunteer walk leaders, range in length from 0.3 to 5 miles depending on the group and destination and originate from the Brentwood, Forest Park, Belleville, Rock Road, Delmar and Shrewsbury MetroLink stations. Citizens for Modern Transit also hosts several special walks each session – look for a July announcement about special walks and in-person registration events!
The cost to participate is $10. New registrants receive a walking kit (valued at $50) with a pedometer, transit tickets, St. Louis maps, safety tips and a Ten Toe tote bag to hold it all. Register today!
