North County Transit Center to Open March 2016Return to Blog
The North County Transit Center is scheduled to open on March 14, 2016.
The new transit center, located at 3140 Pershall Road between West Florissant Avenue and New Halls Ferry Road in Ferguson, Mo., will transform bus service in North St. Louis County by providing connections to more destinations, faster transfers, more direct and frequent service and enhanced passenger amenities.
North St. Louis County is one of Metro’s fastest growing public transit markets, accounting for 19 percent of total MetroBus and MetroLink ridership.
Last month, Metro hosted four open-house style meetings at the Riverview Transit Center, North Hanley Transit Center, St. Louis Community College – Florissant Valley and Trinity Catholic High School, to engage transit users and the public about Metro service in North St. Louis County and find out how the new plan fits their transportation needs.
The feedback received from these meetings, as well as feedback received online, will help Metro determine if any adjustments or modifications are needed to the proposed service plan. A finalized service plan for North St. Louis County is set to be released early next year, and will go into effect when the North County Transit Center opens in March.
Please note that the transit center’s March 14 opening date is contingent on weather. Severe winter weather or excessively cold temperatures could impact completion of construction and the transit center’s opening.

Are there any schedules printed yet for the route #38. I go to Center for Life Solutions and I’m trying to find out where I would catch it and at what time as I need to be there between 6:30 Am and 7;00 am. I use to take the 44 or the 66 on the way out and the 44 back to North Hanley. I start from the Civic Center in downtown. I had trouble finding it on the website.
Jim, the proposed North County service plan is still in the works and we plan to have a final service plan sometime early next year. In the meantime, I’ll go ahead and send your comment to our Planning Department and find out how your commute will look under the proposed service plan. That way, you’ll have a better understanding of what your commute will look like come March 2016.
Jim, as promised, here’s what your commute will look under the proposed North County service plan. We currently plan to have the #38 Hazelwood serve the Center for Life Solutions at its new clinic location off Pershall Road from the North Hanley Metrolink Station. The clinic is supporting an onsite bus stop, hopefully completed by March 14, 2016. At this moment, the current schedule does have arrival times between 6:30 a.m. and 7 a.m., for which I do not see changing. Our goal will be to get passengers to work in the Village Square area before 7 a.m. Again, this is a preliminary proposal. Check back with us toward the beginning of the year as we release a final service package for North St. Louis County.
I take the 66 in the morning to valley industries one trip it wouldn’t be a good idea cutting that route for people that live out that way
Joel, under the current proposed North County service plan, the #66 Clayton Airport will not change. It will remain the same and still provide service to Valley Industries.
I live off of 270 & Graham Rd and work on Lucas & Hunt and W. Florissant. I now have to catch the #47 to the Hanley Station, transfer to the Metro Link and then transfer to the #64 to get to work. Will the Pershall Transfer Center make my commute easier?
Donna, we’ve replied to your comment with your other comment you posted on the blog titled “Share Your Feedback on New North County Service.” Look there for a response.
Have you figured out the times that the #38 will be running to the new location for the Center For Life Solutions. Will it be running all day as the #66 only runs a couple times in early morning and afternoon. The clinic hours are from 6:00am through 5:00pm. A lot of ;people go from around 7:00am thru 5:00pm
James, schedules related to the new North County transit service will be released sometime early next week. Check back at that time for times related to the #38. We will also be at select location on the Metro system starting the week of February 29 to walk passengers through the new transit service. Stay tuned.
