MetroBus Service Plan Proposed for North County Transit Center
Metro transit passengers and the public are invited to learn more about the new North County Transit Center and provide feedback on a new MetroBus service plan proposed for North St. Louis County at four upcoming informal meetings.
The new transit center is located at 3140 Pershall Road between West Florissant Avenue and New Halls Ferry Road in Ferguson, Mo., and is scheduled to open next spring.
Using research, customer data and passenger feedback from previous public meetings, Metro has created a new service plan for MetroBus routes in North St. Louis County, which willbecome effective following the opening of the North County Transit Center next year. The open-house style meetings will provide Metro commuters with an opportunity to provide their feedback on the proposed service plan, and riders will be able to interact with Metro employees and discuss how the new plan will fit their transit needs.
