Flooding disrupts MetroLink service; damage is being assessed, addressed

MetroLink service has been affected by the severe flooding that struck the area after two separate days of storms this past week. As of Friday, however, trains are operating between the Central West End and the Shiloh-Scott stations on the Red Line, and between the Shrewsbury and Skinker stations on the Blue Line. All trains are operating on a 20-minute frequency.

MetroLink bus shuttles are providing service between the St. Louis Lambert International Airport and Central West End Stations, and between the Skinker and Central West End stations. These bus shuttles will stop at every MetroLink station along the route that is without train service. Riders traveling on the bus shuttles through these areas should allow up to an additional 40 minutes for their trips.

  • Airport Riders: To access the station shuttles, you will need to be at the Terminal 1 Station. If you are at Terminal 2, please take an airport shuttle to Terminal 1. If you are heading to the airport on the MetroLink shuttles, you will need to exit the bus shuttle at North Hanley and board a Metro Call-A-Ride van to Terminal 1. The station shuttle is situated outside Door 2 at Terminal 1.
  • Bike Riders: Passengers traveling on station shuttles between Skinker and Central West End stations, and between Lambert Airport and North Hanley stations, are not able to transport bicycles at this time. The Metro Call-A-Ride vans being used as shuttles in these areas are not equipped to hold bicycles.

Transit Information is available to assist riders from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.: text 314-207-9786 or phone 314-231-2345.

MetroLink riders traveling through St. Louis and St. Louis County are encouraged to seek alternative transportation options until full service can be restored.
