train tracks

Update – 7/1: Blue Line MetroLink trains will also only operate between the Shrewsbury and Forest Park Stations after 8 p.m. on Saturday, July 4 and Sunday, July 5. 

You may need to allow extra time for your evening MetroLink commutes this week as construction work along the light rail system may cause slight delays.

On Monday through Friday (June 29 – July 3) from 8 p.m. to end of service, MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Central West End MetroLink Station to accommodate construction work at the station.

During these periods, Blue Line MetroLink trains will only operate between the Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 and Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Stations.

  • Westbound Blue Line passengers will need to board a Red Line train between the Fairview Heights and Central West End MetroLink Stations, and travel to the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station to transfer to a Blue Line train and continue their westbound trips.
  • 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.

    With the protests and staff shortages lately, you have failed to inform riders properly on bus reroutes due to cancellations and protests. You need to update the transit app with any routes to display the caution sign instead of minutes to inform riders the routes closed and will resume at a later date than remove it. Metro continues to be the weakest transit system in the US.
