Metro Transit schedules are changing on March 21

18 Missouri MetroBus routes will be affected

ST. LOUIS – MetroBus riders in the city and county will find some changes at some of their stops next month.

Because Metro Transit has too few bus drivers to operate all its runs, some bus trips have had to be canceled. Customers have had to wait for the next run, find other means of transportation or simply not get where they’d planned to go. So Metro Transit is tweaking its schedules and service frequency along 18 bus routes as of March 21.

It’s also continuing an effort to recruit and train more bus drivers, offering higher pay and a $2,000 hiring bonus.

There are no changes to MetroBus routes in Illinois or to MetroLink train schedules.
