(ST. LOUIS—June 1, 2020) With the reopening of city buildings to the public, the Gateway Transportation Center (GTC) has updated its guidance for travelers and visitors to help minimize the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus):

  • Non-Travelers: Visitors who are picking up or dropping off travelers are encouraged to do so outside. Visitors may also enter GTC to purchase food to-go from the deli.
  • 2-Hour Rule: Travelers may be onsite for up to two hours. Please arrive at GTC no earlier than two hours before your scheduled departure.
  • Masks: Visitors and travelers are encouraged to wear masks. Transit providers may have additional requirements for wearing masks in their service areas.
  • Social distancing: Visitors and travelers should maintain 6 feet between parties where possible. When preparing to board, remain seated until your number is called.

In addition to these rules, GTC encourages travelers to check the status of their scheduled trip with their transit provider before arriving at GTC, and to be mindful and follow guidelines for prevention of COVID-19 spread.

Contact information for transit providers is available on the GTC website and COVID-19 information is available on the City of St. Louis Department of Health website.
