Missouri MetroBus Stop Changes Starting July 15 Will Improve On-Time Service
On July 15, Metro Transit will begin relocating or removing 450 bus stops in the City of St. Louis and in St. Louis County in Missouri to create faster and more efficient trips for MetroBus customers. The stops were identified during a comprehensive analysis of the spacing of the more than 5,400 bus stops that are currently part of the MetroBus system in Missouri.
The recent analysis identified the bus stops as being in close proximity to another stop, typically within one block. By relocating or removing these stops, MetroBus operators will be able to improve on-time performance by avoiding making more frequent stops, block after block, which slow down bus trips as well as vehicle traffic.
MetroBus will continue to serve all of the selected bus stops until they have been relocated or removed.
Signs about potential relocation or removal have been, or are currently in the process, of being installed at all bus stops affected by the change. MetroBus customers can check to see if their stop is impacted by checking the Rider Alerts section of metrostlouis.org, or by contacting Metro Transit Information, available Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., at 314-231-2345 (phone) and 314-207-9786 (text).
