MetroLink to Operate Single-Car Trains on Most Blue Line Trips
[ST. LOUIS, MO/Feb. 12, 2023] MetroLink will operate a mix of both single-car trains and normal two-car trains starting on Monday, February 13. Red Line MetroLink service will primarily have two-car trains in operation, with an occasional one-car train in service. Single-car trains will operate on the Blue Line with a two-car train added during morning rush hour service. Customers riding on the single-car trains can enter and exit from any door on the train, but will need to wait for the train at the end of the platform where the first car normally pulls into a station.
Single-car train operations will not affect schedules, and Red Line and Blue Line MetroLink service will operate on their normal weekday and weekend schedules.
The camera systems on several of the oldest MetroLink cars are in need of repair due to voltage issues. To ensure the safety of customers, these MetroLink cars have been temporarily taken out of service. MetroLink will need to operate single-car trains on the Blue Line until the camera systems on those cars have been restored to operation.
Customers who have questions or are in need of assistance should contact Metro Transit Information by phone at 314.231.2345 or by text at 314.207.9786, available Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
