MetroLink Delays Sept. 27-28 Between Lambert-St. Louis International Airport and North Hanley Station

MetroLink trains will not operate between Lambert-St. Louis International Airport and the North Hanley Station Saturday and Sunday, September 27 and September 28. Passengers will be transported by bus shuttles between both Lambert Airport Terminal Stations and the North Hanley Station and that will create delays of 20 to 25 minutes for those passengers. Customers are encouraged to allow enough time for the longer commute to the airport so they do not miss their flights or arrive late for work at the airport.

Weekend Bus Shuttles for MetroLink Customers
Westbound passengers going to the airport September 27 and September 28 will need to transfer from MetroLink to a shuttle bus at the North Hanley Station to go the airport. The bus will transport MetroLink passengers to both Lambert Airport Terminal #2 Station and Lambert Airport Terminal #1 Station.

Eastbound MetroLink passengers leaving Lambert Airport Terminals #1 and #2 on September 27 and September 28 will be transported by shuttle bus to the North Hanley Station. From there, customers wanting to continue eastbound will then board an eastbound train to continue their trips.

Regular MetroLink service between the North Hanley Station and the airport will resume by the start of service on Monday, September 29. Red Line service between the North Hanley MetroLink Station and Shiloh-Scott MetroLink Station will not be affected. Blue Line service also will be not impacted by the work.

Other Rail Maintenance Work at the Airport
Other rail maintenance work at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport may result in 5 to 10 minute delays for some Red Line passengers Monday through Friday evenings (Sept. 22-26).

MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Terminal #2 MetroLink Station starting at 8 p.m. through the end of service on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday (Sept. 22-24) and Friday (Sept. 26) and from 11:30 p.m. to the end of service on Thursday (Sept. 25).
