Reminder: Adjustments to 18 Missouri MetroBus Routes Go Into Effect Monday

To improve MetroBus service reliability, on Monday, March 21, Metro Transit will make adjustments to schedules and service frequency for 18 Missouri MetroBus routes in the City of St. Louis and in St. Louis County as part of a quarterly service change. There are no changes to MetroBus routes in Illinois or to MetroLink train schedules.

Like other transit agencies throughout the country, Metro Transit has been impacted by ongoing workforce shortages driven by COVID-19 and a competitive labor market. Due to an operator shortage, it is sometimes necessary to cancel scheduled MetroBus trips, which leads to inconvenient delays for MetroBus customers.

The service change set for March 21 will help minimize cancelled bus trips and match service levels to workforce resources so Metro Transit can consistently deliver transit service as scheduled. Details for the March 21 Service Change are available below. New schedules and route maps are currently available on metrostlouis.org and the Transit app for the affected MetroBus routes.

Transit riders who have questions or would like assistance are encouraged to contact Metro Transit Information at 314.207.9786 (text) or 314.231.2345 (phone), Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
