8th and Pine MetroLink Station Will Temporarily Close on Sunday Morning
The 8th & Pine MetroLink Station will be temporarily closed tomorrow morning, Sunday, May 10, from the beginning of MetroLink service until 9 a.m. This closure is necessary to ensure the safety of Metro passengers and employees as large air conditioning units are being moved within the vicinity of the station during this period of the morning. Passengers traveling to downtown St. Louis tomorrow morning are encouraged to use one of the three other MetroLink stations serving the downtown area: Convention Center, Stadium and Civic Center MetroLink Stations.
Updates on MetroBus and MetroLink operations can be found at www.metrostlouis.org in the Rider Alert section, or via social media on Metro’s Twitter feed at @STLMetro and on Facebook at St. Louis Metro Transit.
