To support transit riders during the COVID-19 pandemic, Metro temporarily expanded its Lyft program to provide customers in areas with suspended MetroBus service with access to $1 Lyft rides. With the restoration of service on the #56 Kirkwood-Webster route, the Lyft program will be discontinued along that corridor on August 31.

Beginning in late March, service on some lower-ridership MetroBus routes was temporarily suspended due to reduced workforce availability as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. As workforce resources have become more available in recent weeks, we have been able to restore service on some of these temporarily suspended routes. We hope to make additional modifications to transit services and continue to restore temporarily suspended bus routes later this year. The following Missouri MetroBus routes remain temporarily suspended:

    The opening paragraph says the 59 is being restored. The second paragraph below the list of lines says the 59 has not been restored. Right hand left hand problem!

      I apologize for the confusion. The #59 is resuming service starting on Monday, August 31. We have updated the post to reflect this. Thank you for catching that.

    When will the #2 Red line go back to weekday schedule?

    1. Lindsey says:

      Our Planning team is continuing to evaluate ridership needs and workforce resources and hopes to make additional changes to service later this year.

    The 57 is the only route in West County with night service every 2 hours. Bring back the additional 2 runs to Wildwood including the 11pm arrival to wildwood and restore service to STCC Wildwood. Some people I hear are expected to be stranded because of this mess.

    1. Lindsey says:

      Hi – We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this has caused some of our passengers. We will share your comments with our Planning team as they continue to evaluate schedule changes.

    The 17 Mckenzie comes up on the app but is not restored

    1. Lindsey says:

      Thank you for letting us know – we will have our technology team look into this.

    Will you please restore the Oakville line back to what it was. The current route is useless when you can’t even get from Telegraph to Lemay Ferry and So. Cty Mall. To send that route to a high crime area like So St. Louis is so discrimintory to the residents of Oakville. Sure not getting our tax dollars worth.
