Rider Alert: MetroBus Route Changes Due to Go! St. Louis Marathon Events This Sunday

Patti Beck
Interim Director of Communications
314-982-1440

It’s that time of year again – time for the Go! St. Louis Marathon and Half Marathon scheduled for this Sunday, April 7, 2013. The races Sunday will have a major impact on Missouri MetroBus routes in downtown St. Louis, Soulard, Midtown St. Louis near the Fox Theatre, Central West End, Clayton and University City and points in between. The Grand MetroLink Station will be OPEN but will not be served by the #70 Grand MetroBus route Sunday between 7:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. The #70 Grand MetroBus route will serve the Convention Center during that time. Since so many streets will be closed to accommodate the runners, 21 MetroBus routes will be rerouted Sunday. MetroBus customers should allow extra travel time for their commutes Sunday to allow for the detours. The Go! St. Louis events on Saturday will not affect MetroBus service.

MetroLink customers should also allow for five to 10 minute delays on Saturday and Sunday due to scheduled maintenance work. The Blue Line will only be running from the Shrewsbury Lansdowne I-44 Station to the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station on Saturday and Sunday.

The Sunday MetroBus reroutes are:

#1 Gold Line
#2 Red Line
#4 Natural Bridge
#8 Bates Morganford
#10 Gravois-Lindell
#11 Chippewa
#13 Union
#16 City Limits
#18 Taylor
#30 Soulard
#32 ML King-Chouteau
#40 Broadway
#41 Lee
#42 Sarah
#70 Grand
#73 Carondelet
#74 Florissant
#90 Hampton
#94 Page
#95 Kingshighway
#97 Delmar

Specific details and individual maps for each reroute can be found at www.metrostlouis.org in the Rider Alert section. The #99 Downtown Trolley will not be affected during the event.
