A potential bus driver shortage may occur today (August 19), which may have an impact on your morning commute. Due to an unusually high number of MetroBus operators already calling off work and declining to work extra assignments, we anticipate that we will not be in position to deliver the normally high quality service the region has come to expect every day. While we will utilize every qualified Metro employee we can to drive a MetroBus vehicle, it will likely not be sufficient to serve all morning rush hour trips.

To assist our MetroBus customers, the Metro Transit Information team will be expanding hours from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. - and are available by phone at 314.231.2345 or text at 314.207.9786.

We'll make sure to inform you of the latest transit operations here, with the newest updates being published first.
