ST. LOUIS COUNTY
The St. Louis County project, called the North STL County Community Connector, is currently studying several potential alternatives for extending light rail from north St. Louis City (possibly along Natural Bridge Avenue) to the North County Transit Center along I-270 or other locations. This includes studying the costs and estimating ridership for each alternative as well as determining potential station locations. The goal for this phase is to select the best option that meets community needs.
NORTH COUNTY STUDY AREA ALIGNS WITH SEVERAL METRICS ASSOCIATED WITH TRANSIT NEED, USAGE AND FUNDING

TECHNICAL FACTORS GUIDED DEVELOPMENT OF ALTERNATIVES
- Equity and demographics
- Existing bus ridership
- Light rail-compatible alignment
- Network transfer opportunities
NORTH STL COUNTY COMMUNITY CONNECTOR ALIGNMENT OPTIONS
Keep in mind MetroBus can connect from any potential light rail line and travel deeper into North County.
