MetroLink and MetroBus Schedule Changes Begin August 22

New schedules will go into effect on August 22 for Red Line and Blue Line MetroLink trains and for 59 MetroBus routes as part of Metro’s quarterly transit service change. These scheduling changes will improve connections for passengers who transfer between Red Line and Blue Line trains at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station. MetroLink schedules were last adjusted in 2012 to accommodate work on the historic Eads Bridge over the Mississippi River. Major rehabilitation work has been completed on the bridge superstructure and the new light rail deck. Both the eastbound and westbound MetroLink tracks on the Eads Bridge were reopened for normal service earlier this summer. Eastbound and westbound trains shared the same track during the four-year bridge project so MetroLink could continue to operate across the Mississippi River while the massive rehabilitation project was underway.       

To ensure MetroBus maintains timely and efficient connections with MetroLink and the new train schedules, nearly all MetroBus routes in Missouri will have minor schedule changes on August 22. In addition, five MetroBus routes will experience minor routing changes. Metro transit riders can find the updated schedule and route information for MetroLink or MetroBus online at metrostlouis.org by going to the Plan Your Trip tab at the top and then clicking on the Service Updates page. They can also call Metro Customer Service at 314-982-1406 or 618-271-7879, from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The quarterly service changes are part of Metro’s commitment to build a better transit experience for its riders. Metro constantly monitors and reviews feedback from passengers and operators, and every quarter, Metro uses this feedback and other data to improve MetroLink connections and MetroBus route performance.
