The Civic Center Transit Center soon after construction was completed.

Providing Safety, Comfort and Convenience for Metro Riders

The Civic Center Transit Center in downtown St. Louis, one of Metro’s busiest transit hubs, was redesigned and expanded to provide passengers with a better transit experience. The transit center was expanded to 18 bus bays, allowing it to accommodate all of the MetroBus routes serving downtown St. Louis. The Civic Center Transit Center also provides Metro riders with the highest level of passenger amenities and features the transit system has to offer, including public restrooms, an indoor waiting area, on-site MetroBus and security personnel, digital arrival-time boards and concessions.

“You have to compete for federal funds, and Metro and Bi-State Development are to be commended for securing $8.4 million in federal dollars to support this project,” said Mokhtee Ahmad, FTA Administrator for Region 7. “That investment is helping build a better and stronger transit system that will allow Metro to operate even more efficiently and safely, and better serve the needs of public transit riders and the region as a whole.”
