Metro Transit Expansion meetings with Chesterfield meeting added September 17


A new type of public transit service called Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is being explored by Metro and regional partners -- the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT), East-West Gateway Council of Governments, City of St. Louis, and St. Louis County.

The partnership is conducting the St. Louis Rapid Transit Connector Study and is requesting public input online through September 13 and at public meetings scheduled for September 10, 11 and 12 and 17th. The mission is to expand transportation choices and improve connections between residents and jobs. The public is encouraged to visit the study’s website, www.movingtransitforward.org/stlrapidtransit, to learn more about the four options and to participate in the online survey to help evaluate them.

Public input on the four alternatives will be accepted online through Friday, September 13. Based on community feedback and additional technical analysis, two "finalist" projects will be selected to compete for federal funds. The two recommended projects will be presented at public meetings scheduled for September 10, 11, and 12, where citizens will be asked to provide additional feedback on the corridors, service strategies, and station amenities.
