MetroBus Service Plan Proposed for North County Transit Center

Return to Blog

North County Transit CenterMetro transit passengers and the public are invited to learn more about the new North County Transit Center and provide feedback on a new MetroBus service plan proposed for North St. Louis County at four upcoming informal meetings.

The new transit center is located at 3140 Pershall Road between West Florissant Avenue and New Halls Ferry Road in Ferguson, Mo., and is scheduled to open next spring.

Using research, customer data and passenger feedback from previous public meetings, Metro has created a new service plan for MetroBus routes in North St. Louis County, which willbecome effective following the opening of the North County Transit Center next year. The open-house style meetings will provide Metro commuters with an opportunity to provide their feedback on the proposed service plan, and riders will be able to interact with Metro employees and discuss how the new plan will fit their transit needs.

Public Information Meeting Schedule

Metro successfully competed for federal funding to plan and build the North County Transit Center. The new MetroBus facility will feature an indoor passenger waiting area, public restrooms, concessions, and a free Park-Ride lot.

The new Metro transit hub will transform bus service in North St. Louis County by providing connections to more destinations, faster transfers, more direct and frequent service, and enhanced passenger amenities. North St. Louis County is one of Metro’s fastest growing public transit markets, accounting for 19 percent of total MetroBus and MetroLink ridership.

    Can you post the exact plans online for those that cannot attend?

    1. Matthew Hibbard says:

      Shannon, we are in the process actually. We hope to post the proposal by 2 p.m. at the earliest. We’ll send out a Facebook and Twitter post when we do. Stay tuned.

  2. Herbie says:

    Is there a full map of the proposed changes. The map in the linked PDF omits many bus routes which makes it difficult to assess where changes have been made. E.g. the 49 and 66 are missing from the map along with every city bus route.

    1. Matthew Hibbard says:

      Currently, the map in the PDF is the only map available at this time. However, I will check with out planning department to see if there any changes to the #49 and #66. Thanks for your feedback.

    Where will the 174X AM run start with the new changes for the North County Center.

    1. Matthew Hibbard says:

      174X will start at the North County Transit Center and travel on News Halls Ferry to Halls Ferry to Riverview to West Florissant to Interstate 70 to Downtown serving the Convention Center Station and ending at the Civic Center Transit Center.
