Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Backpacking the Katy


Have a trip planned beginning in May. Want suggestions on the best way to get from St. Charles to Lambert and then to the Amtrak station downtown for the return trip to KC. Any and all suggestions will be appreciated.

Don't recall specific website, but search "st. charles transit". They have a commuter bus service that makes about 5 stops in St. Charles, one of which is the Ameristar Casino and ends at one of the Metrolink stops. Metrolink will take you straigth to downtown and drop you at the new transportation center where buses, Metrolink, Amtrak are all together (it was under construction last Sept when we biked the Katy, but I believe it is complete now. In any case, the temporary Amtrak station was a 500 foot walk from the Metro center). The St. Charles buses are COMMUTER buses, so there are about 5 departures that leave St. Charles very early in the morning Mon-Friday only, with returnS in the late afternoon, so it is not an all-day service.)

SHOULD BE A SHUTTLE FROM THE CASINO TO THE HOTELS AROUND LAMBERT. CATCH METRO LINK FROM LAMBERT TO DOWNTOWN.
