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, Sept. 4, to get answers to all your questions about how to get around the St. Louis area.

    Good afternoon St. Louis! A new MetroBus service plan for the St. Louis region will go into effect on September 30, and there are changes to every MetroBus route in Missouri. The new plan will provide more frequent service, faster and more direct trips, improved weekend service and more convenient options. To plan your new commute, we recommend downloading the Transit app, use Google Transit or give us a call at 314-231-2345. Let us know what transit questions you have today.
    Was there any though put into what time the new routes arrive at places. The new 97 has it arriving in Clayton at 6 minutes after the hour/half hour. I, like most people I assume, have to be at work on the hour/half hour. I know the new 33 has the same problem for all the people who work at Delmar & 170, it arrives there at 7 minutes after the hour. And they have it even worse since it only runs once an hour.
    Karen, when redesigning Metro Transit service across the St. Louis region we did take a look at transfer time points at Metro Transit centers. To the best of our ability, Metro Transit planners have tried to provide enough time for riders to make connections between bus and rail. That being said, Metro Transit will carefully assess the transit network under the new redesign and may tweak service via future Metro Quarterly Service changes, which occur four times each year.
    Thank you St. Louis for chatting with us this afternoon. If you use MetroBus in Missouri, the service will change on September 30. Start planning today. Download Transit or use Google Transit to plan your trip. We're also happy to walk you through the changes. Give us travel team a call at 314-231-2345. If we don't talk to you sooner, see you next month for another live chat.
