A New Vision of Public Transit in the St. Louis Region
Project Update: Metro Transit is revising the draft plan that was first introduced this spring, and we will share a revised vision later this fall. No major changes will occur to the MetroBus system until next year at the earliest.
The St. Louis region is constantly evolving. So are its transit needs. Last year, we launched Metro Reimagined to ensure the Metro Transit system is positioned to meet those changing needs — today and in the future.
Using customer feedback and data collected through the Metro Reimagined study, we have developed a draft of a new transit service plan for the St. Louis region. It is designed around people, and all of its operations, schedules, routes and services were developed to meet our riders’ needs.
This proposed plan includes:
► More frequent MetroBus service, with high-volume routes having 15-minute or better service throughout the day and most other routes with 30-minute service ► A simpler, easier-to-understand network with MetroBus service designed to provide riders with faster, more direct trips ► New technology, including a text-messaging service customers can use to directly contact Metro Public Safety or Metro Transit Information, an email/text subscription service so riders can instantly receive Rider Alerts and other transit news, and a new mobile ticketing option ► New community mobility options, including shuttles and on-demand services
Fixed-route, regional partnerships, vanpools, shuttles, etc.
30 minutes or better all day service or on-demand service available all day.

In July 2017, we launched Metro Reimagined — a full-scale, comprehensive analysis of the MetroBus system. It’s a proactive look at the mobility needs of the region, which is helping us improve the customer experience and increase access to destinations throughout the area.
The focus is on our customers. Metro Reimagined not only looks at where people travel in the region, but why they travel and how they want to get there. The study also evaluates the potential of new technology and innovative transit concept, from new vehicles to new service options.
Our goal is to ensure that Metro remain a valuable transportation resource and a driver of economic growth and development for the region.
