    How about bringing Via further south service the areas left without service by the removals of the old 40X and 20 lines in Mehlville?

    1. Lindsey says:

      Hi Collin – thank you for the feedback. We will share this with our Planning team as they review service needs for Via Metro STL.

      No, Via Metro STL currently operates in Southwest and North St. Louis County.

    Why ar some of the Metro Vi drivers not showing up for their shifts leaing early from their shift leaving people stranded and the some drivers telling the riders tht the service stops at 7pm when Metro and Via say service in the Fenton area starts at 4:30am to 10:00pm. Since it is funded by taxpayer money how bout getting thee press involve like Elliott Davis and Chis Nagus

    1. Jerry says:

      Thanks for sharing this information – we will contact our partners at Via and ask them to investigate what you’re experiencing.

    On November 29, 2021, Metro will be starting this in the place of Bus Route #79. Metro has us on the chopping block in 2019, but #ericambrook and #Gabrielqcornelius #Savesuburbananddade and #Savesouthflorissantroad with a 6month campaign. We pursued the campaign for a year to make sure we knew about what was being done throughout the process. Via Metro STL could be a good offset partnership to continue to accompany Metrobuses, but not a main source of transportation.

    On June 12,2023 41 Metro bus routes are going to change causing a lot of people to be really upset with Metro. And even though Via is supposed to be a backup for getting you to your destination it’s really not a good option. Metro doesn’t allow Via to operate outside of the zone which makes no sense at all especially, since drivers are basically sitting around waiting for someone to request a ride. There’s always 3-5 Via drivers at the Ballas Transit Center in Town and Country, Mo and unfortunately they don’t go to Chesterfield MO. There’s a lot of people that ride the 58 Chesterfield Valley bus that’s going to be upset because, the last bus leave St Louis premium outlets at 9:18pm on weekends starting June 12,2023. The 10:54pm time slot for the 98 Ballas leaving the Ballas Transit Center was taken away, the 98 Ballas will be running every 2hrs on weekdays after 6pm 7:54pm 9:54pm 11:54pm is the last 98 Ballas leaving the Ballas Transit Center.
