Director of Communications
MetroLink trains will not operate in Illinois between the College and Shiloh-Scott Stations from 8 p.m. until the end of service October 1-4 and October 7 in order to accommodate ongoing MetroLink track work. The St. Clair County Transit District will transport Red Line MetroLink customers by MetroBus from the College MetroLink Station to the Shiloh-Scott MetroLink Station. Westbound passengers should allow for 20-25 minute delays and eastbound passengers should expect 5-10 minute delays.
MetroLink customers and baseball and football fans are advised to plan ahead to avoid the delays caused by the track work. The St. Louis Cardinals are playing night games at Busch Stadium tonight through Wednesday night (Oct.1-3) and Thursday night (Oct. 4) the St. Louis Rams are in action against the Arizona Cardinals at the Edward Jones Dome. Both football and baseball fans who normally park at the Shiloh-Scott MetroLink Station are encouraged to park at the College MetroLink Station or one of the other Metro Park-Ride lots on game nights.
Starting at 8 p.m. October 1-4 & October 7, bus shuttles operated by the St. Clair County Transit District will transport MetroLink passengers between the College MetroLink Station to the Shiloh-Scott MetroLink Station.
Westbound Red Line passengers from Shiloh-Scott MetroLink Station will need to board a shuttle bus to travel to the College MetroLink Station. From there, they can board a train to continue west. They should allow an extra 20-25 minutes for their commutes.
Eastbound Red Line passengers will exit the train at the College MetroLink Station and board a shuttle bus to continue their trip to the Shiloh-Scott MetroLink Station. They may experience 5-10 delays during the bus shuttle operation.
Blue Line service will not be impacted. Updates on MetroLink operations can be found at www.metrostlouis.org in the Rider Alert section.
