Metro Transit Quarterly Service Change Scheduled for November 30

Metro Transit will make adjustments to 14 MetroBus routes in Missouri and Illinois as part of its quarterly service change, scheduled for Monday, November 30.

This information was used for the November 30 service change to update MetroBus schedules to improve on-time performance and transit connections, replace service on two routes with new mobility options, and restore service on four MetroBus routes that were temporarily suspended earlier this year due to the pandemic.

All Metro Transit customers are encouraged to check metrostlouis.org, Transit app or contact Metro Transit Information for updated MetroBus schedule information. Metro Transit Information is available Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 314.207.9786 (text) or 314.231.2345 (phone).
