Real-Time Bus Information When You Need It

Wondering when a MetroBus will be pulling up to your stop? With a quick call or text, you can get real-time arrival times and transit information from anywhere, at any time.

By Phone

Call Metro Transit Information at 314-231-2345 or 618-271-2345 and press 1 to use the automated system.

Enter your MetroBus Stop ID number, and the automated system will tell

you the next three real-time arrival times for your MetroBus route at that stop. It will also let you check on any Rider Alerts impacting bus routes serving that stop.

Stop ID number can be found in the bottom left corner on every MetroBus stop sign in the region.

By Text Message (SMS)
Locate your Stop ID number on the MetroBus sign. The Stop ID number is the four or five-digit number located on the bottom left of the bus sign. Text your Stop ID number to 79322. After about a minute, you will receive the next three real-time arrival times for bus routes serving that stop.

If a route has an active Rider Alert, it will be noted with an asterisk and you can access a link to learn more.

For a bus stop that serves multiple MetroBus routes, you can choose a particular route by adding the route number to the end of the Stop ID number.

For example, the North Broadway Transit Center has Stop ID number 13487, and serves both the #70 Grand and #95 Kingshighway routes. If you only need the next three arrival times for the #70 Grand, simply text 13487-70 to receive trip information for that route. This feature works at any bus stop served by multiple routes.
