    Isn’t the announced change for the #1 Gold misleading, since work on the pedestrian tunnel at Wash U will delay the actual service change until August?

    • CourtneyLS

      We have now updated the #1 Gold change to reflect the reroute, as well as the #2 Red reroute as well.

  • Patrick Richmond

    Well, guess what.  There is a reroute on MetroBus route #56 that began two or three weeks ago and is scheduled to last 18 months. I posted the reroute because someone removed it off of Facebook and those reroutes are public infomation items and should be up during the duration of the time the reroute is to be in effect.  I asked the security guard just outside the Kayak’s Coffee shop and he agreed with me that it was stupid to take the public information down off the board when it comes to reroutes.  But incase if the planners feel there is a need to keep the reroute of MetroBus route #56 secret, then I am having Call-a-Ride take me to work at Mercy and bring me home.  Keeping public information secret is what kills ridership. 

  • CourtneyLS

    Patrick, we have returned the rider alert about the #56 reroute to the rider alerts page. The reroute will be in effect as needed by road construction in the area.
