Metro Service Change Starting November 29 – Details for Your Commute

Return to Blog

Blue graphic that reads "Metro Service Adjustments effective November 29"

Metro Transit will make adjustments to schedules and service frequency for 38 Missouri MetroBus routes on Monday, November 29. This includes the temporary suspension of service on six MetroBus routes. There are no changes to MetroBus routes in Illinois or to MetroLink service.

Like other transit agencies and businesses, Metro Transit has been challenged by the nationwide labor shortage. Due to a shortage of bus operators, it is sometimes necessary to cancel scheduled MetroBus trips on a daily basis, which leads to inconvenient delays for MetroBus riders. These changes to MetroBus service will be implemented to improve service reliability and minimize or eliminate cancelled bus trips, while Metro Transit continues to aggressively recruit and train new operators.

To check on the status of your bus, use Transit or contact Metro Transit Information at 314.207.9786 (text) or 314.231.2345 (phone), Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
