CMT's Ten Toe Express spring walk session will kick off on Wednesday, September 5, 2018 and run through November, 2018.

The Ten Toe Express Program is designed to help individuals experience just how easy it is to integrate walking with public transit use to get around town, while also promoting the health and well-being benefits of an alternative commute. Key features of the program include access to walk maps that provide detailed directives on how to utilize transit to get to many of the region’s cultural and entertainment hot spots, and the ability to participate in weekly guided Ten Toe Express Walking Tours. These tours are led by trained volunteer walk leaders and allow residents to be part of a group as they become familiar with the transit system and how to utilize it to get to destinations region-wide.

The Fall Ten Toe Express session will run from September to November and feature weekly walks starting at the Brentwood, Forest Park, Belleville, Rock Road, Delmar and Shrewsbury MetroLink stations. Special, regional walks hosted by CMT will be noted on the schedule.

“The Ten Toe Express program is one that has taught me a lot about living in St. Louis and what it has to offer,” said Ann LaBeau, Ten Toe Express program participant. “Although I grew up in the county, a visit to the city was rare. I joined the group trying to prepare and become comfortable with using public transportation, knowing that eventually I would have to give up driving. Now, I am capable of using Metro transit and I am happy knowing that when the time comes to give up my keys, there is another choice for me.”

Ten Toe Express registrants receive a Ten Toe Express Walking Kit that includes a tote bag (for new walkers), a pedometer, a Metro system map, and four free transit tickets. Ten Toe Express participants also have access to Citizens for Modern Transit’s Ten Toe Express section on its website which includes a complete catalog of walk maps available for printing or downloading, and the ability to report walk logs and track personal success.

*New this year - Premium Registration!  Premium registration includes a Ten Toe Express Walking Kit that includes a new tote bag (for new and/or returning walkers), a Metro system map, and four free transit tickets, PLUS a Ten Toes Express T-Shirt (quantities limited) for $15.  

“We’re very proud of the success of the Ten Toe Express program, commented Kim Cella, the executive director of Citizens for Modern Transit. “Since its inception in 2007, CMT has introduced more than 7,400 seniors to the system, and the program continues to grow steadily. We hear endless praise for our amazing volunteer walk leaders – Dan O’Connor, Norm and Joan Krumrey, Mary Blaies, Mary Fran Balmer and the entire team of walk leaders for the Rock Road group. We hope this program continues to grow and introduces new users to the links between transit, independence, health, the region and one’s overall quality of life.”
