Over the years, the CMT Ten Toe Express® program has helped thousands of older adults and other individuals lead healthier lives by linking activity, sociability and exercise with the use of MetroLink and MetroBus. Each weekly CMT Ten Toe Express® walking tour is led by a trained, volunteer walk leader and ranges in length from 0.3 to 5 miles, depending on the group and destination.
Each tour starts from an area transit center, such as: Brentwood I-64, Forest Park-DeBaliviere, Belleville, or Shrewsbury-Lansdowne 44. Participants then take the MetroLink or MetroBus to Forest Park, downtown St. Louis, the Delmar Loop, downtown Belleville or 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 or in smaller groups.
Registrants in the CMT Ten Toe Express® program will receive a walking kit which includes a green belt bag that can be used to hold your belongings while walking, a pedometer, maps, transit tickets, and a “Tips & Tricks” flyer with information to help you prepare for group walks.
