Metro Transit Security Assessment

Since March 2018, we have been working closely with our partners at the East-West Gateway Council of Governments, St. Louis County Police Department, St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department, and security consultant WSP-USA to enhance safety and security efforts on the Metro Transit system and address regional concerns.

Using data, insights and recommendations developed through a system-wide security assessment, we have made improvements and enhancements to our approach to transit safety and security over the past two years, and will continue to make progress throughout 2020.

Read about the Metro Security Assessment and Strategy and the implementation of recommendations that are improving safety on the system.
