Shuttle Will Temporarily Replace MetroBus Service to St. Louis Downtown Airport Starting September 26Return to Blog
Beginning Monday, September 26, the #2 Cahokia MetroBus route in Illinois will not be able to serve St. Louis Downtown Airport or the adjacent Sauget Business Park due to construction work on the Curtiss-Steinberg Bridge. During construction, the #2 Cahokia will not turn onto Curtiss-Steinberg Drive, and will instead stay on its regular route on Falling Springs Road.
For transit riders who need to travel to or from the airport and business park, a Metro Transit shuttle van will be available beginning on September 26. The shuttle will operate between the 5th & Missouri Transit Center and St. Louis Downtown Airport/Sauget Business Park.
The shuttle will provide service every 40 minutes, seven days a week. Southbound trips from the 5th & Missouri Transit Center to St. Louis Downtown Airport begin at 5:16 a.m., with the last trip at 7:36 p.m. Northbound trips from St. Louis Downtown Airport to the 5th & Missouri Transit Center begin at 5:30 a.m., with the last trip at 7:50 p.m.
This temporary shuttle service will be in place until construction work on the Curtiss-Steinberg Bridge is complete, which is expected to take approximately two months.
