MetroLink Passengers to be Transported by Bus Between North Hanley and Lambert Airport Stations on October 17 & 18

To accommodate necessary maintenance work on the light rail system, MetroLink will not operate between the Lambert Airport Terminal 1, Lambert Airport Terminal 2 and North Hanley MetroLink Stations on Saturday, October 17 and Sunday, October 18.

During this period, MetroLink Station Shuttles will transport MetroLink passengers by bus between the North Hanley MetroLink Station and St. Louis Lambert International Airport. Red Line MetroLink passengers traveling through this area should expect delays of 15 to 20 minutes, and are encouraged to plan ahead and allow extra time for their commutes to ensure they make it to their gate on time.

Signage will be in place at the affected stations and at St. Louis Lambert International Airport to help direct transit riders to the shuttles, and Metro Transit will have extra personnel available to assist passengers. MetroLink plans to resume normal operations by the beginning of service on Monday, October 19.
