Metro Transit will make adjustments to MetroBus routes in the City of St. Louis and in St. Louis County on Monday, September 6, as part of its quarterly service change and to address operator shortages. These route and schedule adjustments are being implemented to better match service levels to available manpower resources, which will help minimize delays and provide you with more reliable MetroBus service. In addition, changes to three MetroBus routes are being implemented to provide better connections for workers employed at several businesses in North St. Louis County. There are no scheduled changes for MetroLink or MetroBus service in Illinois.

Due to a shortage of transit operators, Metro Transit has been forced to cancel select MetroBus trips on a daily basis. The adjustments outlined in this quarterly service change will help improve MetroBus service reliability, however, select bus trips may continue to be cancelled as needed.

To check on the status of your bus, use Transit app or contact Metro Transit Information at 314.207.9786 (text) or 314.231.2345 (phone), Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

New schedules and route information for the September 6 service change are available on the Upcoming Schedule Changes page.

Please note that this service change begins on Labor Day, when Metro Transit will be operating a Sunday schedule in observance of the holiday.

Before you ride, here are some quick reminders:

  • Face coverings are required for all passengers and team members when riding Metro Transit.
  • With the $5 Metro Day Pass, you can enjoy all the St. Louis region has to offer with unlimited rides on MetroLink and MetroBus for an entire day.
  • You can purchase most MetroBus and MetroLink passes through the Transit app with our new mobile fares.

    Why are metro employees parking in the pickup passenger lane at the civic center in the evening? I pick up my daughter every evening and I can’t find parking.

      Hi Phyllis – Thank you for letting us know about what you are seeing. Are you seeing Metro Transit vehicles being parked there, or are these personal vehicles? We will share this information with our team so they can look into what is happening.

  2. Greetings. The #16 will take me to the Shrewsbury Station. I can take #11 or #16 for the return trip. I can take #21 from Shrewsbury to Walmart/Shrewsbury. Thanks!
