Changes to Two MetroBus Routes Beginning May 2

Changes in place for four months due to bridge replacement project

Two MetroBus routes will be impacted starting Monday, May 2, by the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) bridge replacement project on Manchester Road. MoDOT will close Manchester Road west of Hanley Road to replace the bridge over Black Creek, and the road closure is expected to be in place for four months. The impacted MetroBus routes are the #31 Chouteau and the #57 Manchester.

Beginning May 2 and through the duration of the road closure, the following MetroBus changes will be in place:

  • #31 Chouteau will be extended to serve the Brentwood I-64 Transit Center during weekday service. The #31 Chouteau will not enter the Maplewood-Manchester Transit Center on weekdays, but customers can access the transit center at a temporary bus stop on Manchester Road immediately south of the Maplewood-Manchester Transit Center. Eastbound trips on both weekdays and weekends will not operate south on Hanley Road, and will instead travel on Bruno, Maplewood Commons, Folk and Laclede Station to Manchester Road, then resume its regular eastbound route.
  • #57 Manchester will be extended to serve the Brentwood I-64 Transit Center during weekday and weekend service. The #57 Manchester will not serve the Maplewood-Manchester Transit Center through the duration of the bridge replacement project.

MetroBus customers who use these routes may need to make adjustments to their commutes and should allow extra time to avoid any potential delays. New schedules and route maps for the #31 Chouteau and #57 Manchester can be found on the Upcoming Schedule Changes page of metrostlouis.org and on the Transit app.

Transit riders who have questions or would like any assistance are encouraged to contact Metro Transit Information at 314-207-9786 (text) or 314-231-2345 (phone), Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
