Metro Quarterly Service Update Scheduled for November 28

Metro regularly monitors and reviews feedback from riders and operators, and each quarter, uses this feedback along with other trip data to adjust MetroBus routes and schedules. These service updates improve on-time performance and MetroLink connections, and are a part of Metro’s commitment toward building a better experience for the transit riding public in the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County in Missouri and in St. Clair County in Illinois.
