    Courtney,

    A good candidate would be stops that Metro built a “ticket office” it no longer uses. Shrewsbury is good candidate, as is Maplewood.

    Along those lines, I hope the information give out at the booths is better than that online. I dont know how tight the software tolerances are, but I continue to see cases where Trip Finder or Google Transit doesnt list a connection I can make. Biggest example I have is the 1 – on several trips during our cold snap, neither online source made the connection to catch a train, yet I was able to manually piece things together using printed time tables.

    Also, a little more info on the 32 would be helpful (and, for that matter, any of the now split routes). Several nights ago, I rode the 32 eastbound from the Maplewood stop. The headsign and number matched just fine for my connection from the train (at Maplewood). However, Ridefinder and GT both insisted I had to walk up to Laclede Station to catch this bus. I got on at Maplewood…only to have the bus turn WEST. Figuring I had somehow misread the headsign, I got off at Hanley, and ran up the hill to Laclede Station Rd…only to have the SAME BUS I WAS ON come pick me up. If you ride the bus REGULARLY, you likely know that the eastbound 32 goes WEST briefly, turns around just past Hanley, and goes east to pick up the passengers underneath the train overpass. I rarely ride that route (or its previous incarnation), so I had NO idea.

    Also, numbering on the signs along that route is horrid (and I know that isnt the only route with issues). They all have the old numbering, which, when you are questioning schedules online, doesnt help matters in the slightest.

      Thanks RT. I’ll pass along the information. We’ve hears something similar from other customers lately. Thanks!
