A new MetroBus service plan for St. Louis County and the City of St. Louis will go into effect Monday (September 30).
This major service change will impact every bus route in Missouri and will provide frequent service, improved weekend service and more convenient options for getting around town.
This is the culmination of a two-year project, which took an in-depth analysis of the Metro Transit system to identify improvements that’ll better meet your mobility needs. Research, customer engagement and community outreach conducted during the project identified faster, more direct trips and more frequent service as top priorities.
Through the new service plan, Metro Transit is increasing frequency on many MetroBus routes. Ten routes, which carry nearly half of current MetroBus customers in Missouri, will offer service every 15 minutes or faster on weekdays. Today, the MetroBus system currently only has one bus route (the #70 Grand) that offers 15-minute frequency. In addition, the new service plan includes 35 MetroBus routes that will offer 30-minute frequencies, instead of the 40-minute or 60-minute service many routes operate on today.
Weekend service is also being improved through the Metro Reimagined plan. Nearly all MetroBus routes will have Sunday service, including many routes that currently do not operate on Sundays.

The Metro Reimagined project was launched in 2017 to effectively position the Metro Transit system to meet the evolving transportation needs of the St. Louis region. Community engagement and your input have been a key part of the Metro Reimagined plan, and adjustments to the service plan were made to retain service in areas, where possible, in response to the feedback.
