PUBLIC INPUT BEING SOUGHT ON DESIGN CONCEPTS FOR THE “TRANSIT STOP TRANSFORMATION” PROJECT LOCATED AT THE METROBUS STOP AT 13th STREET AND GRAVOIS AVENUE

Citizens for Modern Transit and AARP in St. Louis are seeking public input on the design concepts recently released to transform the MetroBus Stop #9045, located at 13th Street and Gravois Avenue near Soulard in the City of St. Louis. The project is part of the partnering organizations’ next “Transit Stop Transformation” Project. The design was developed by Acernus Architecture, based on input received earlier this year from transit riders, residents, elected officials and other stakeholders. Individuals are encouraged to complete this brief online survey before Friday, June 28, 2024, to weigh in on design options.

The “Transit Stop Transformation” Project at 13th Street and Gravois Avenue aims to transform the dilapidated corner stop into a fresh, vibrant space with seating, a bus shelter, paved walkways, landscaping and more. Once the second round of community engagement is completed, the design concept will be finalized, and construction will commence. The project is projected to be completed in January 2025.

The goal of this and all other “Transit Stop Transformation” projects is to transform places that people typically pass through on their way to their next destination into community amenities that improve safety and security, build ridership and increase engagement around transit. Each project showcases a deep understanding of and commitment to equitable development around transit, the impact and possibility of play, the ability for creative interventions to produce long-term impact in neighborhoods accessible for residents of all ages, and the need for collaboration to succeed.

Transformations have been completed at a MetroBus Stop in Maplewood, the Emerson Park and 5th & Missouri Transit Centers in East St. Louis, the Belleville Transit Center in Belleville, and the North Hanley Transit Center in North St. Louis County. Construction is also underway on a transformation at the Fairview Heights Transit Center. To learn more, visit here.
