ST. LOUIS — People who ride buses and light rail in the St. Louis region will have more options starting in June.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Metro is announcing that buses will begin running more routes, and more rush-hour trains will be available for the MetroLink system.
The public can comment about the changes in a series of meetings through May.
St. Louis County voters approved a half-cent sales tax to restore Metro services that had been cut in March 2009. The tax will generate about $75 million a year, and its passage triggers collection of a quarter-cent sales tax that city voters approved in 1997.
