Evening Track Work Continues in Illinois: Bus Shuttles to Transport MetroLink Customers Between College and Shiloh-Scott Stations
MetroLink track work in Illinois continues in the evenings again this week. MetroLink trains will not operate between the College and Shiloh-Scott Stations from 8 p.m. until the end of service Monday through Thursday, August 20-23, and Sunday, August 26. 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.
The St. Louis Cardinals are playing at Busch Stadium Tuesday night (Aug. 21) and Wednesday night (Aug. 22). Baseball fans are encouraged to avoid the delays caused by the track work by parking at the College MetroLink Station or one of the other Metro Park-Ride lots instead of the Shiloh-Scott MetroLink Station Park-Ride lot, on game nights.
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.
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.
Blue Line service is not impacted by the rail work.
