  • 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.

On Tuesday through Friday (Sep. 8-11) from 8 p.m. to end of service, MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Sunnen and Maplewood-Manchester MetroLink Stations for track maintenance.

    Is route 57 seriously on detour? I have not seen the bus docs y detour since the road between Brentwood and McKnight is not closed. Also label any affected bus stops missed on the transit app for every route that’s on detour just because riders are still getting confused that every bus stop in service but is not.

      Will check with Operations about the #57. There are two reroutes currently in place according to our Rider Alerts, one pertaining to Brentwood and McKnight. Also, will see if we can do anything about labeling bus stops in Transit app when it comes to detours. Thanks for the feedback.
