MetroBus Fare Collection Resumes Monday, June 1

Metro Transit will resume front-door boarding and fare collection on MetroBus vehicles beginning on Monday, June 1. To reduce the person-to-person contact between bus operators and passengers, Metro has been waiving the collection of cash fares on MetroBus since March 21, and riders have been boarding buses via the rear doors.

Metro has also made other adjustments to transit operations and services to better protect operators and passengers, and to minimize potential exposure to the coronavirus. With these measures now in place, Metro anticipates being able to resume fare collection, while continuing to address the health and safety of operators and passengers.

 


 

Face Coverings Required for Transit Riders Starting May 11

To help protect transit riders and Metro Transit employees from the spread of coronavirus, Metro is taking the important step of requiring all customers to wear face masks. Beginning Monday, May 11, face coverings are mandatory for all Metro Transit customers and employees when riding MetroBus, MetroLink or Metro Call-A-Ride services.

Face coverings need to fit over your nose and mouth, and non-medical masks, scarves, handkerchiefs, bandanas and other types of cloth coverings are permitted.

You must wear a face covering during your entire trip on a Metro Transit vehicle. This policy does not apply to children ages 2 and under, and customers who have trouble breathing, are incapacitated or are unable to remove the cover without assistance.

 


 

Update – 4/20/2020: New Changes to schedules

Metro Transit will introduce a new service plan to improve the scheduling and reliability of MetroBus service during the COVID-19 pandemic. Under the new plan, Metro will temporarily suspend service on six MetroBus routes, and will modify schedules and service frequencies for most MetroBus routes in Missouri due to lower ridership and fewer available workforce resources.

  • Several MetroBus routes will have increased frequency during select daytime hours to reduce overcrowding and support social distancing on buses.
     
  • Most MetroBus routes will have reduced frequencies throughout daytime and evening hours.
     
  • Several MetroBus routes will end service earlier in the evening.
     
  • Service will be temporarily suspended on the #2 Red | #13 Union | #47 Hanley | #56 Kirkwood-Webster | #58 Chesterfield Valley | #75 Christian Hospital.
     
  • There are no new changes to MetroLink service.
     

For updated information and schedules, check your route or contact Metro Transit Information for assistance.
