  • Eastbound Blue Line passengers will need to board a Red Line train at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station to continue their eastbound trips.
  • Red Line MetroLink passengers may experience delays of 5 minutes.
  • Passengers should allow 10 minutes when transferring between Red Line and Blue Line.

    Have you extended the fares being suspended? I heard April 14 that bus fares will start to be collected again?

      Fare enforcement on MetroBus and Metro Call-A-Ride has been waived until further notice.
