Return to Blog

Union Station

MetroLink passengers may need to allow extra time for their commutes as maintenance and infrastructure work along the light rail system will require some changes to MetroLink service.

On Monday and Friday (July 29 & August 2) from 8 p.m. to end of service and all day on Saturday and Sunday (August 3 & 4) MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Union Station and Civic Center MetroLink Stations due to work on the overhead power system. During these periods, Blue Line MetroLink trains will only operate between the Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 and Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Stations.

  • Westbound Blue Line passengers will need to board a Red Line train between the Fairview Heights and Central West End MetroLink Stations, and travel to the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station to transfer to a Blue Line train and continue their westbound trips.
  • Eastbound Blue Line passengers will need to board a Red Line train at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station to continue their eastbound trips.
  • Red Line MetroLink passengers may experience delays of 5 minutes.
  • Blue Line passengers should allow 10 minutes when transferring between Red Line and Blue Line

On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (July 30, July 31 & August 1), MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Union Station and Civic Center MetroLink Stations from 11:30 p.m. to end of service. Blue Line trains will operate normal service, but Blue Line and Red Line MetroLink passengers may experience delays of 5 minutes.

On Monday through Friday (July 29 – August 2) from 8 p.m. to end of service, and on Saturday (August 3) from beginning of service to 8 a.m., MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Brentwood I-64 and Richmond Heights MetroLink Stations to accommodate track maintenance. Blue Line customers may experience delays of up to 5 minutes. Red Line service will not be affected.
