Changes to MetroBus Service Scheduled for Monday, November 30Return to Blog
On Monday, November 30, Metro Transit will make adjustments to 14 MetroBus routes in Missouri and Illinois as part of its quarterly service change.
Metro has been monitoring transit operations and passenger volumes throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. This information was used for the November 30 service change to update MetroBus schedules to improve on-time performance and transit connections, replace service on two routes with new mobility options, and restore service on four MetroBus routes that were temporarily suspended earlier this year due to the pandemic.
New schedules and service information are available here: metrostlouis.org/upcoming-schedule-changes.

Calling STLCC Wildwood right now to get a shuttle bus from wildwood town center to get to my job. I can’t afford doing rideshare when Metro wants to stop service over there.
Can you make a 9:00 bus and/or make the buses 30 minutes apart from one another a lot of people get off at 9 and have to wait a hour on the bus because our job close at 9 or so we want get stuck anywhere.
Let me know what bus route and the location where this would be helpful. Our Planning team may not be able to increase bus frequency at that time, but they always try to make adjustments to make the service work better for our riders – particularly if there are several people impacted at a specific location/bus route. Let me know, and we’ll share your feedback with them.
Is the a change to the 49 going to South County Mall
There are no changes to the #49 Lindbergh included in the November 30 service change.
Could you check 410X PM schedule please? The current one doesn’t make any sense.
Thanks for the heads up – there appears to be a spacing/duplication issue on the PM schedule. We’ll have it addressed immediately.
When will the 79X North County Express route resume?
At this time, there’s no schedule for when the #79X would return to service. It was temporarily suspended during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Also starting during the pandemic and continuing today, we are experiencing a shortage of operators. We continue to recruit and graduate new classes of operators, and we’ll need to wait for our workforce levels to rise before we are able to revisit the temporarily suspended routes.
