Creating a comfortable and safe transit waiting area

North County Transit Center

St. Louis, MO

Metro Transit recognized the need to expand its services in north St. Louis County to address the fastest-growing public transit market in Missouri. To accommodate this need, Metro purchased an abandoned car dealership for conversion into a 25,300 SF bus transfer center, and an adjacent lot for the construction of a new 160,000 SF maintenance facility.

Open in March 2016, the $5 million center provides an indoor temperature-controlled waiting space with concessions, public restrooms, staff offices, Call-A-Ride van dispatch, public meeting room as well as a free park-ride 100-space lot. Riders can wait outside under large canopies with around-the-clock security. Metro anticipates that as many as 8,000 commuters a day will use the center.

The maintenance facility will hold 70 buses up to 60 feet long, 25 vans, 10 bus repair bays, a separate farebox maintenance and storage facility, wash rack and pump house, fueling station, and an on-site vehicle dispatch center.
