Metro Launches New Online Trip Planner

Return to Blog

A MetroBus pulls up to a bus stop in front of the Clayton Rd. Schnucks. A rider waits at the bus stop.

Metro Transit is introducing a new version of our online Trip Planner to provide a more accessible resource for our riders and ensure everyone can easily plan their Metro trips. This new version will replace our current Trip Planner, which will be discontinued at the end of April.

The new Trip Planner is powered by Google Transit, which has all of our train and bus schedules, rider alerts, and can track real-time MetroBus information. To plan your trip, enter your starting point and destination, and when you want to travel. The itinerary will show you step-by-step instructions for your commute. Any rider alerts potentially impacting your trip will be displayed under your route, and the color of the trip times can help you see the status of your bus:

  • Green: On schedule, updating in real-time
  • Red: Delayed, updating in real-time
  • Black: Not updating in real-time, schedule time is displayed

   

More Trip-Planning Resources

Transit app is another convenient option to not only plan you trip, but also pay for your fare, view schedules and check out the real-time status of your bus – all from your mobile device. Download Transit today.

If you need any assistance, contact one of our Transit Information Experts and they can create your personalized trip plan – call 314.231.2345, text 314.207.9786, or click on the red chat icon at the bottom right of the page. Our team is available Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

    What about transit priority signals as promised in the 2019 reimagined plan? Lots of busses running late because of traffic signals.

      Metro continues to explore this technology, and while there are no specific routes selected yet, it’s likely best-suited along the busiest corridors with frequent bus service. Are there any particular routes or intersections you have noticed that would benefit the most from traffic signal prioritization?
