MetroLink Elevator Rehabilitation Begins July 22

Return to Blog


Metro Transit will repair and restore elevators at three MetroLink stations beginning July 22. To accommodate this rehabilitation work, each of the three elevators will need to be out of service for approximately five months.

The first elevator scheduled to go out of service for rehabilitation is the eastbound elevator at the 8th & Pine MetroLink Station on July 22. That will be followed by work beginning on the eastbound elevator at the East Riverfront MetroLink Station on July 29 and on the westbound elevator at the Convention Center MetroLink Station on August 19.

“This rehabilitation work will ensure that we can continue to provide safe and reliable service for our customers,” said Jessica Mefford-Miller, Executive Director of Metro Transit. “These elevators have been part of the MetroLink system since the beginning and are now more than 25 years old. With these improvements, we will be able to extend their operational lives so they can continue to serve customers for another 25 years.”

If you require elevators, here are suggestions:

For additional information or assistance, contact Metro Transit Information at 314-231-2345 (phone) or 314-207-9786 (text), available Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Customers can also use the Passenger Assist Telephones, which are located at all MetroLink stations, for assistance.

    I know that the bus 58X will no long be in Market Street after Sept 30th. I am wondering if it is possible to change it back to the existing route as right now, be along Market street. My co-workers and me all not feel safe and convenient to walk from the bus stop on Olive street to Postal office building on Union station. Thank you.

      Jin, the changes coming on September 30 are final. We recommend making travel plans now so that you’re prepared when the changes go into effect at the end of the month.
