Bus Shuttles Continue Nights in Illinois Next Week for MetroLink Passengers
Director of Communications
To accommodate ongoing MetroLink track work in Illinois next week, MetroLink trains will not operate between the College and Shiloh-Scott Stations from 8 p.m. until the end of service August 12-16 and August 19. The St. Clair County Transit District will transport Red Line MetroLink customers by MetroBus from the College MetroLink Station to the Shiloh-Scott MetroLink Station. Westbound passengers should allow for 20-25 minute delays and eastbound passengers should expect 5-10 minute delays.
The St. Louis Cardinals are playing at Busch Stadium next Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights. Baseball fans are encouraged to avoid the delays caused by the track work by parking at the College MetroLink Station or one of the other Metro Park-Ride lots instead of the Shiloh-Scott MetroLink Station Park-Ride lot, on game nights.
Starting at 8 p.m. August 12-16 & August 19, bus shuttles operated by the St. Clair County Transit District will transport MetroLink passengers between the College MetroLink Station to the Shiloh-Scott MetroLink Station.
Westbound Red Line passengers from Shiloh-Scott MetroLink Station will need to board a shuttle bus to travel to the College MetroLink Station. From there, they can board a train to continue west. They should allow an extra 20-25 minutes for their commutes.
Eastbound Red Line passengers will exit the train at the College MetroLink Station and board a shuttle bus to continue their trip to the Shiloh-Scott MetroLink Station. They may experience 5-10 delays during the bus shuttle operation.
Blue Line service will not be impacted. Updates on MetroLink operations can be found at www.metrostlouis.org in the Rider Alert section.
