Phase I Wider Shot Rendering North County Transit Center

Metro is inviting passengers and the public to learn more about the new North County Transit Center and share comments and feedback on a new MetroBus service plan proposed for North St. Louis County at four informational meetings beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, November 10.

These open-house style meetings will provide visitors with an opportunity to engage Metro employees and provide their feedback on the proposed service plan for MetroBus routes in North St. Louis County, which will become effective following the opening of the North County Transit Center next year.

Public Meeting Schedule

Passengers can also learn more about the North County Transit Center and the proposed service plan, and leave their comments and feedback online.

North St. Louis County is one of Metro’s fastest growing public transit markets, accounting for 19 percent of total MetroBus and MetroLink ridership. Metro successfully competed for federal funding to plan and build the North County Transit Center, which will be located at 3140 Pershall Road in Ferguson, Mo. The new MetroBus facility will feature an indoor waiting area, public restrooms, concessions and a free Park-Ride lot. It is scheduled to open next spring.

    Is there any buses that are going to run more frequent on the 66 to Village than the couple that run only in the morning and about three routes in the afternoon. There are several hundred a day that takes the 44 currently, but the clinic is moving over to North Lindbergh and Pershall Rd, after the first of the year. There are a lot of mothers with children and elderly that won’t be able to get there the way the routes are timed currently. There is no walkway from Dunn Rd. over the highway currently.

      Jim, I’ve sent your comment over to our planning department. I’ll respond to you here when I receive a response.

      Jim, the new #38 Hazelwood will serve all day starting in March. It will run every 40 minutes during peak hours and 60 minutes on off peak hours, nights and on weekdays. On Saturday and Sunday, it will run every 60 minutes. It will originate at the North Hanley MetroLink Station, or from Brown and Dunn by Village Square to that location.

    I think this is a great idea! It will give North County residents better access to public transportation.
