Loop Trolley Construction to Impact Metro Transit Service to Forest Park

We are pleased to share this announcement from our partners at Metro Transit: 

Beginning Monday, March 30 the Loop Trolley project will impact MetroBus routes serving Forest Park as well as how MetroLink customers will be able to access the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station for several months.

The following changes are necessary in order to accommodate construction work and the closure and demolition of the DeBaliviere Bridge at the Forest Park Parkway:

MetroBus

#90 Hampton

  • From March 30 to September 27, the #90 Hampton will not provide service into Forest Park, and will instead reroute around Forest Park via Kingshighway Blvd. and Pershing Avenue.
  • During this period, passengers connecting to the #90 Hampton from the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station will need to board the bus on Pershing Avenue at DeBaliviere Avenue, just north of the MetroLink station.

#3 Forest Park Trolley Limited Service (map and schedule below)

  • To accommodate employees at Forest Park attractions who would normally take the #90 Hampton to work, the #3 Forest Park Trolley Limited will offer limited service from March 30 to April 30.
  • This service will operate seven days a week between 6:21 a.m. and 10:37 a.m. each morning, and between 2:21 p.m. and 5:37 p.m. each afternoon.
  • The route will begin at Pershing and DeBaliviere Avenues, just north of the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station, and make stops at the Visitor’s Center, Grand Basin, St. Louis Art Museum, St. Louis Zoo and the Boathouse.

MetroLink

Passengers using the park-ride lot will need to cross DeBaliviere Avenue to access the east staircase or elevator.
  • The kiss and ride loop at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station, which allows vehicles to drop-off and pick-up riders at the station, will be closed to vehicle traffic throughout the duration of the construction.
