Metro to hold open houses on new North St. Louis County Transit Center service

arch busarch busFinal BusMetro is inviting transit customers and the public to learn more about the new North St. Louis County Transit Center at three upcoming informal meetings. The new transit center, which is scheduled to open in fall 2015, will be located at 3140 Pershall Road between West Florissant Avenue and New Halls Ferry Road in Ferguson. The new MetroBus facility will feature an indoor passenger waiting area, public restrooms, concessions, and a free Park-Ride lot.

 

Since North County MetroBus routes will change when the new transit center opens, the open-house style meetings will be an opportunity for customers to help plan and shape MetroBus service.  There will be no formal presentations so Metro employees can talk with MetroBus riders about their transit needs in North County. Riders will be encouraged to discuss options on how MetroBus routes should connect with this new facility and the surrounding communities.

     

The dates, times and locations of the Metro meetings are as follows:

 

St. Louis Community College at Florissant Valley Student Center

                3400 Pershall Road 

                September 30     10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

 

                North Hanley MetroLink Station

                                4398 Hanley Road

                                October 2       2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

 

                Riverview-Hall Transit Center

                9021 Riverview Drive

                        October 7       2 p.m. to 6 p.m.    

 

The second phase of the project will add a new maintenance facility for MetroBus vehicles and Metro Call-A-Ride vans. Federal funding must be secured before those plans can move forward.
