Metro Transit Riders Experience Delays, Union Denies Work Stoppage

Riders who use Metro Transit experienced delays Monday morning.

In a statement, Metro said "an unusually high number of MetroBus operators" were not on the job Monday and others did not accept additional duties. The organization said it has all available qualified employees driving buses, but that still isn't enough to cover the absences, resulting in delays.

MetroLink trains ran limited service also, as the Blue Line only operated between Shrewsbury and Forest Park. The line usually runs from Shrewsbury in St. Louis County to Fairview Heights in the Metro East.

Ben Byaz rode the southbound 70 Grand Monday morning and said the delays almost made him late for a court date. He said the trip would usually only take 30 minutes, but today it took him an hour and a half.
