Metro will operate special late night/early morning MetroBus shuttles to transport eastbound MetroLink customers between the Central West End, Union Station and Civic Center MetroLink Stations during the early morning hours of Thursday, Dec. 29; Friday, Dec. 30 and Saturday, Dec. 31, 2011. Eastbound MetroLink passengers should allow an extra 10 to 15 minutes for their commutes.
The last four eastbound trains on MetroLink’s service schedule are being taken out of service at the Central West End Station so the contractor constructing the new Grand Boulevard Bridge can work above the MetroLink tracks at the Grand MetroLink Station.
Passengers will get off the last four eastbound trains at the Central West End Station at 12:35 a.m., 12:49 a.m., 1:05 a.m., and 1:19 a.m. and board a MetroBus to continue eastbound to the Union Station MetroLink Station and to the Civic Center Station. Westbound MetroLink service will not be affected because all westbound trains will have cleared the area before the overhead construction work begins.
Updates on MetroLink operations can be found at www.metrostlouis.org in the Rider Alert section or by calling Customer Service at 314-231-2345 or 618-271-2345 from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
