MetroBus Service Changes Scheduled to Begin August 14

Metro’s quarterly service change goes into effect on Monday, August 14, and will modify the operations of 33 MetroBus routes in the St. Louis metropolitan area. All MetroBus routes currently serving 18th Street & Clark Avenue near Union Station will move back to the newly expanded Civic Center Transit Center at 14th and Spruce Streets.

The Civic Center Transit Center has undergone a complete transformation, including the construction of an indoor waiting area, concessions area and public restrooms, and triple the number of bus bays, to accommodate all 23 MetroBus routes that serve downtown St. Louis. The Civic Center Transit Center will also be smoke-free. No smoking of any kind, including e-cigarettes, will be allowed anywhere on the property.

In addition, four existing MetroBus routes will become eight new routes. The new MetroBus routes will provide passengers with better reliability and shorter, more direct service. New schedules and maps for all MetroBus routes impacted by the service change are available at metrostlouis.org. Riders can also contact Metro Transit Information at 314-231-2345 or 618-271-2345. Metro Transit Information will offer expanded service hours starting August 14. Transit riders will be able to talk to a member of the Metro Transit Information team from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Metro regularly monitors and reviews feedback from riders and bus operators, and uses the feedback and other trip data to make updates to MetroBus routes and schedules each quarter. These service updates improve on-time performance and MetroLink connections, and are a part of Metro’s commitment to build a better experience for the transit riders throughout the region.
