Now this means the place will even serve the Museum of Transport! Aswesome!
How about bringing Via further south service the areas left without service by the removals of the old 40X and 20 lines in Mehlville?
Hi Collin – thank you for the feedback. We will share this with our Planning team as they review service needs for Via Metro STL.
Does this cover Maplewood thru University City area?
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
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.
