ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Metro Transit is making some scheduling changes that will impact morning commutes starting Monday.

Seventeen bus routes will be changing, which is something Metro does every quarter, in an effort to improve service. The relatively small service change is taking place at a significant time because metro redesigned every bus route in North County when they opened the new transit center a few months ago.

“We listen to our riders and our operators who are out there driving the streets every day and also get feedback from employers in the area what their needs are and then if we need to adjust the frequency or times to better connect MetroBus and MetroLink then we do that,” Metro Spokesperson Patti Beck said.

Below is a list of the changes:

  • #11 Chippewa: Schedule adjustments - additional weekday trips will be added during off-peak daytime service.
  • #34 Earth City: Schedule adjustments - last weekday trip will be adjusted to arrive at the North Hanley MetroLink Station at 11:31 p.m. to connect with the #4 Natural Bridge departing at 11:36 p.m.
  • #38 Hazelwood: Schedule adjustments - adjustments made to facilitate connections with the #35 Rock Road at Phantom Drive.
  • #47 Clayton-NCTC: Schedule adjustments - adjustments made to facilitate better connections with the #258 Clayton-West County at the Clayton Transit Center.
  • #61 Chambers: Route and Schedule adjustments - route will be extended to serve Lookaway & Spring Gardens. (#71 Parker will serve the Riverview Transit Center.)
  • #70 Grand: Schedule adjustments - two late night trips will be added northbound from Loughborough Commons at 1:18 a.m. and 1:48 a.m. to the Grand MetroLink Station.
