See the rotating M? The deep blue letters declaring Car Wash? A line of cars waiting to shed road film?
Youre approaching one of three Metro Express locations, each on one of the Treasure Valleys busiest roadways.
Billing itself as high-tech and retro, Metro Express boasts 150-horsepower vacuums sure to suck the hidden dirt from your cars nooks and crannies. Attendants are standing by to retrieve any treasures you inadvertently siphon. Use of the vacuums comes free with the car wash.
Need more stats? Metro Express air dries your car with a mighty wind of 170 miles per hour.
Choose from three washes: the basic $6 Downtown wash and dry; the more luxurious $10 Uptown with clear coat, rust inhibitor and RainX; and a top-of-the-line $12 package that polishes your tires in addition to the Uptown treatments. Or buy a Metro Pass, load it with the amount you want to spend, and the car wash will put an extra $5 on the pass for good measure. Use the card at any of the three locations for whichever wash package you choose, and you can reload it when the money runs out.
