Getting to St. Louis

The St. Louis area is served by Lambert International Airport, a short 20-minute ride from the Siteman Cancer Center. Daily, weekly and monthly car rentals are available at the airport. In addition, public transportation is available from the airport to the cancer center's main campus. This includes a light-rail system with a station on the Washington University Medical Center campus in the Central West End area of St. Louis that is just a few blocks from the cancer center. For more information about light-rail, bus and van shuttle schedules, visit the Metro website.

Beyond air transportation, St. Louis is easily accessible by bus, car and train.
