#76 McDonnell-Waterford to be Rerouted for 18 Months

MetroBuses will not serve portion of Pershall Road due to road construction project

Beginning on Monday, August 3, the #76 McDonnell-Waterford MetroBus route will not be able to serve Pershall Road between Ford Lane and Graham Road in North St. Louis County due to the I-270 road construction project. The #76 McDonnell-Waterford will be rerouted for the duration of the MoDOT project, which is scheduled to take 18 months.

During this period, transit riders can travel to and from areas near the closed section of Pershall Road by using Lyft, through a partnership between Metro Transit and Lyft that provides $1 Lyft rides in select areas of the region.
