Talk to Metro about buses and MetroLink
Ask Metro Transit about bus and train schedules, new technology, fares and more in our monthly chat with the Metro experts. Join them at noon Wednesday, June 5, to get answers to all your questions about how to get around the St. Louis area.
Jimmy, the East-West Gateway (EWG) Council of Governments completed a conceptual design study for a Northside-Southside light rail corridor. This work refined design and operating plans, route alignment, and station locations first identified through a body of work that concluded in 2008. The next step in the project development process for a project like a Northside-Southside light rail corridor is an environmental impact assessment (EIS) and preliminary design. A federal application process would begin about mid-way through that work. That process lasts 2-3 years, and requires significant funding (all local funding). Metro and our partners at EWG have continued conversations with the City of St. Louis about advancing this work into the EIS phase. We do have a clear timeline for project development once the EIS is initiated.
