Metro transit reopened the east entrance of the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station this morning, and passengers are now able to use the stairs and elevator on the east side of DeBaliviere Avenue to enter and exit the station. The station’s east entrance has been closed since last September to accommodate Loop Trolley construction work.
In addition, the MetroBus stop at the southeast corner of DeBaliviere Avenue and Pershing Avenue has been relocated. MetroBus riders will now use a shared Trolley Bus Stop, also located on the southeast corner of DeBaliviere and Pershing, to connect with northbound MetroBus routes.
Metro personnel are at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station this morning to assist passengers with these changes. Passengers with questions or comments about Metro service should contact Metro Customer Service at 314-982-1406 or 618-271-7879, Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
