North St. Louis County is one of Metro’s fastest growing public transit markets, accounting for 19 percent of total MetroBus and MetroLink ridership. Metro successfully competed for federal funding to plan and build the North County Transit Center, which will be located at 3140 Pershall Road in Ferguson, Missouri. The new MetroBus facility will feature an indoor waiting area, public restrooms, concessions and a free Park-Ride lot. It is scheduled to open next spring.
