Travel Information

From the Airport

There are several types of transportation available from the airport to the Wash U Med School campus: MetroLink (light rail), ride share services (Uber, Lyft), or taxi.

MetroLink Light Rail System: During the day and early evening hours, the MetroLink is the best way to reach campus. The cost is $4 from the airport. If you decide to take the MetroLink in the evening and you’re staying at the Parkway Hotel, you can call ahead to Medical School Security at (314) 362-4357 to arrange for an escort to accompany you from the MetroLink station to your hotel.

If you ride MetroLink, get off at the Central West End station. After leaving the train, climb up the steps to Euclid Avenue. When you are at the top of the stairs, you are on Euclid Avenue. Turn right (north) and walk toward Forest Park Avenue. Within the block, you will find the Eric P. Newman Education Center on the right, where the conference is being held. If you keep going another block to Forest Park Avenue, on the right you find the Parkway Hotel (connected to the Applebees on the corner).

If you are having any difficulty, please call Security at 314-362-4357.

Ride Share or Taxi: The approximate cost from the airport to the medical center is $35. St. Louis has both Uber and Lyft services.
