Bi-State Development, which operates the tram, requires face coverings for all Gateway Arch tram riders, ages 2 and up, with no exceptions.

  • Face coverings must fully cover the guest’s mouth and nose, should be secured under the chin, and fit snugly against the sides of the face.
  • Face coverings must be worn for the duration of the tram experience (45-60 minutes).
  • Plastic face shields may be worn, but a properly fitting face covering must also be worn underneath.
  • Guests may bring their own face coverings or face coverings and face shields are available for purchase in The Arch Store.
  • Social distancing is not possible at all times of the tram experience, therefore tram guests unable to wear face coverings are encouraged to visit at a later date.

These policies are in place for the safety of our guests and employees. Those not in compliance will not be permitted to take the Tram Ride to the Top at this time.  We appreciate your full cooperation.
