Public transportation in St. Louis is not great. The Metrolink, St. Louis's above-ground rail line, is free for Wash U students and has two stops near campus, but it has limited hours and is far from the freshman dorms. Besides the Metrolink, St. Louis has a complicated bus service and no subway, which makes a car indispensable for full access to the city and surrounding areas. The convenient Wash U shuttles that run to nearby supermarkets, shopping malls, and movie theaters make up somewhat for this deficiency, but public transportation is one of St. Louis's major problems.
Further, St. Louis has a particularly spread-out geography. Interesting things to do are dispersed throughout a radius of several miles in the metro area, making access difficult without a car. Of course, everybody has friends with cars—even freshmen—so making some kind of quid pro quo arrangement with that friend might be a nice way to overcome St. Louis's shortcomings in the transportation arena and see what the area has to offer.
