Metro Transit Service Change Scheduled for November 29

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.

Details for the November 29 Service Change are available below. New schedules and route maps for the affected MetroBus routes will be available on the Upcoming Schedule Change page beginning Monday, November 15.

    As Service on some routes (#65….) will be temporarily suspended beginning on November 29.
    We ask for:
    #58 add some stops at Chesterfield area (Chesterfield and Chesterfield PKway). We can take it to Clayton station.
    Thanks!

      Hi – We appreciate the feedback. An alternative for some riders on the #65 is Via Metro STL’s new West Zone. Via is an on-demand transit service that lets you hail a vehicle directly from your smartphone using the Via app, and travel to any location within the service area during operating hours. Here is a link to more information: https://www.metrostlouis.org/via/

    You need to extend VIA to Eureka to support 410X riders and the 57X WEST of 270 on Clayton (Clarkson and Clayton to Mason and Clayton). Your going to strand lots of commuters.
