The 2023 Spring CMT Ten Toe Express session is officially underway. This award-winning program, hosted by Citizens for Modern Transit (CMT) in conjunction with AARP in St. Louis, helps older adults and other interested individuals lead healthier lives by linking activity, sociability, and exercise with the use of MetroLink and MetroBus. The spring session runs through the end of June and costs $10 to participate. Registration can be completed online here.
The Ten Toe Express® program features weekly guided Ten Toe Express Walking Tours, allowing walkers to be part of a group as they become familiar with the transit system and how to utilize it to get to attractions regionwide. These walks, led by trained, volunteer walk leaders, range from 0.3 to 5 miles, depending on the group and destination. Each starts from either the Brentwood I-64, Forest Park-DeBaliviere, Belleville, Rock Road, North Hanley or Shrewsbury-Lansdowne 44 Transit Centers. They then take the MetroLink or MetroBus to Forest Park, downtown St. Louis, the Delmar Loop, downtown Belleville and other areas (depending on the week) where they explore local attractions and stop for lunch or a snack before heading back. Special walks are scheduled periodically throughout the season. Walking maps with instructions on how to utilize transit to get to many of the region’s cultural and entertainment hot spots are available online to assist those who want to explore areas independently.
First-time registrants receive a walking kit containing a pedometer, maps, transit tickets, and a safety tips flyer in a Ten Toe tote bag. Any individual who ops into information on AARP will also receive a special gift. (While Supplies Last) We can’t wait to see you and your ten toes around town this Spring.
