Shuttle Van to Temporarily Replace MetroBus Service to St. Louis Downtown Airport Beginning September 26

Beginning Monday, September 26, the #2 Cahokia MetroBus route in Illinois will not be able to serve St. Louis Downtown Airport or the adjacent Sauget Business Park due to construction work on the Curtiss-Steinberg Bridge. During construction, the #2 Cahokia will not turn onto Curtiss-Steinberg Drive, and will instead stay on its regular route on Falling Springs Road.

For transit riders who need to travel to or from the airport and business park, a Metro Transit shuttle van will be available beginning on September 26. The shuttle van will operate between the 5th & Missouri Transit Center and St. Louis Downtown Airport/Sauget Business Park.

The shuttle will provide service every 40 minutes, seven days a week. Southbound trips from the 5th & Missouri Transit Center to St. Louis Downtown Airport begin at 5:16 a.m., with the last trip at 7:36 p.m. Northbound trips from St. Louis Downtown Airport to the 5th & Missouri Transit Center begin at 5:30 a.m., with the last trip at 7:50 p.m.

This temporary shuttle service will be in place until construction work on the Curtiss-Steinberg Bridge is complete, which is expected to take approximately two months.

The shuttle route map and schedule are available on metrostlouis.org. For assistance, riders are encouraged to contact Metro Transit Information, available at 314.231.2345 (phone) or 314.207.9786 (text), Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
