Quarterly Service Change - June 15

On Monday, June 15, Metro Transit will modify schedules for MetroLink and MetroBus routes in Missouri and Illinois as part of its quarterly service change. These changes are being implemented to improve on-time performance and transit connections, and to help maintain safe operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes increasing service frequency during peak travel periods on several MetroBus routes to help promote social distancing and reduce overcrowding.

June 15 Service Change Overview

  • 20 MetroBus routes will have increased frequency during select daytime hours to reduce overcrowding and support social distancing on buses
  • MetroLink will operate 15-minute service during peak hours on weekdays and 20-minute service during off-peak hours and weekends
  • Due to limited workforce and vehicle resources as a result of COVID-19, service will continue to be suspended on the following Missouri MetroBus routes: #1 Gold | #2 Red | #5 Green | #13 Union | #17 Mackenzie | #59 Oakland | #57X Clayton Road | #58X Twin Oak Express | #73X I-55 Express | #79X North County Express | #410 Eureka Express
  • Alternative transportation options available for riders who use the #47 Hanley, #56 Kirkwood-Webster, #58 Chesterfield Valley and #75 Christian Hospital routes in Missouri, and the #2X Waterloo-Columbia and #7 Fairmont routes in Illinois
  • Detailed schedules and information for MetroLink and every MetroBus route are available at the bottom of this page, as well as our Upcoming Schedule Changes page.

As businesses continue to reopen in the region, here are some reminders about riding Metro Transit:

    Terrible Plan, increase frequency on the 57 to every 30 minutes from Maplewood since there’s NO social distancing being done. I use that route and could have to cancel my bus rides plans to avoid getting the coronavirus. If safety is your #1, then you need to increase frequency.

    1. Lindsey says:

      Thank you for providing us your feedback. We will share your comments with our Planning team as they continue to review service needs on specific routes.

  2. Fustrated Person says:

    If your keeping Call-A-Ride vans on the 101, enable live bus tracking and live arrival times, I’ve seen people get stranded because of your horrible customer service.

    1. Lindsey says:

      Metro Call-A-Ride vans do have vehicle locator devices, but unfortunately we are not able to add them to the real-time tracking feature at this time.

  3. George says:

    There’s a new feature on the transit app which allows users to see how many seats are open on a bus. Has this technology been considered? There’s 3 transit systems I know that use this technology.

    1. Lindsey says:

      We do not have plans to activate that feature at this time.

  4. sarah says:

    I normally use the #2. Why doesn’t that route qualify for the Lyft program? When will service be restored?

    1. Lindsey says:

      We hope to bring back service on temporarily suspended routes in August/September, and we and we will share any updates on our social media pages and website as soon as it is available.

  5. Acorn says:

    The coloring of the routes on the transit app is starting to be misleading because on the service frequency. Update the routes colored in purple to blue that lost the 15 minute frequency. Also fix the #9 that shows it going through Jefferson Barracks Cemetary and the #101 which is showing it staying on MO 30 to Laclede Station Rd to regular route. The #100 shows it not going on I-70 WB as well on the transit app. If it goes on I-70, it must be fixed on the transit app as well as the #101 and the #9.

    1. Lindsey says:

      Thank you for sending us this feedback. We have shared it with our Planning team and they are looking into it.

  6. Don says:

    There’s instances when you’re 40 foot busses have no one in them to only 1-3 people in them and some of you’re drivers are forcing people to wear masks even if it is at that reach. If 3 people or less can be spread out inside the bus, we do not need to put a mask on unless the 4th person boards and therefore on. One of your drivers I’ve seen told someone to put a mask on when there was only TWO people onboard with one in the front and back of the bus. Start this policy!

    1. Lindsey says:

      Our policy requires all passengers and team members to wear a face covering for their entire trip on MetroLink, MetroBus or Metro Call-A-Ride, regardless of the amount of people on the vehicle. This policy is for the health and safety of everyone using our system. We appreciate your patience as we continue to provide essential service for our region during COVID-19.
