Reminder: MetroLink Passengers to be Shuttled by Bus This Weekend
MetroLink trains will not operate between the Forest Park-DeBaliviere and Central West End MetroLink Stations on Saturday, January 7, and Sunday, January 8, so we recommend allowing extra time for your commutes this weekend.
Trains will not be able to operate between these stations due to the demolition of the Forest Park Parkway bridge over the MetroLink tracks west of Kingshighway by the city of St. Louis, weather permitting.
MetroLink Station Shuttles will transport you by bus between the Forest Park-DeBaliviere and Central West End Stations. If you’re traveling through this area, expect delays of 15 to 30 minutes. Metro will have personnel and signs at the stations to assist you.
On January 7 and 8, Red Line and Blue Line MetroLink trains will operate on their normal schedules west of the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station. Red Line trains will operate east of the Central West End MetroLink Station, running every 20 minutes between the Central West End and Shiloh-Scott Stations. There will be no Blue Line service east of the Central West End Station; so if you’re a Blue Line passenger you should instead board a westbound Red Line to the Central West End Station, and ride the MetroLink Station Shuttle to the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station to transfer to a westbound Blue Line train.
MetroLink will resume normal operations by the beginning of service on Monday, January 9.
If you have questions, feel free to reach out to Metro Transit Information at 314-231-2345 or 618-271-2345, Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
