Bus Stop Eliminations Start Monday

BuschBusMonday, Bi-State Development Agency (d.b.a. Metro) begins the process of removing bus stops and eliminating some bus routes. There does not appear to be a published list of routes eliminated, only “Rider Alerts” with bus stop ID number and cross street identification.

Some of the bus stops eliminated include:

S 12th @ Allen/Allen Market used by the Allen Market Lane Apartments (senior citizen housing), dishwashers and servers who work at Soulard restaurants, and others.

S Tucker @ Soulard used by people shopping at Fields Foods. The stop at S Tucker @ Lafayette appears to remain but obviously means a longer walk with your grocery bags.

I spoke at two of the meetings sponsored by Bi-State against quite a few specific changes proposed for Soulard and other parts of the City, what Bi-State called “Metro Reimagined.”  I felt like I was talking to machines that could speak but not hear.

If you’d like to voice your opinion on these changes, you may contact Bi-State/Metro
Call: 314-982-1406
Text: 314-207-9786

You used to be able to take a bus to Busch Stadium. That convenience was replaced with take a bus + take train to Busch. These changes starting Monday are more of the same. It’s as if we have a public transit agency that does not want to provide decent bus service.

Tuesday Hearing on New Tax District For Part of Soulard


10 am Tuesday, July 2nd, 2019
Board of Aldermen
Ways & Means Committee
Kennedy Hearing Room, Room 208, City Hall, 1200 Market
Open to Public Public

Hearing on Board Bill 83  by 7th Ward Alderman Jack Coatar to create the Soulard Community Improvement District, a special tax district. Passage of the Board Bill would facilitate a vote on sales tax funding of the District. The vote would be by registered voters within the district  by mail.

The Board running the District will be appointed by the Mayor and represent only property owners and businesses. Renters will have no seat on the Board. Over 70% of Soulard is rental units.

City Online Calendar Notice/Agenda. Committee’s Agenda was finally posted 8:34 am Monday. We previously knew Board Bill 83 would be heard on Tuesday because property owners within the proposed District received their meeting notice required by law (from the CID’s legal counsel, Husch Blackwell).

These types of board bills are aldermanic privilege bills, meaning the hearing is a formality and no one will vote against it.

Members of Ways & Means Committee: Chair/10th Ward Alderman Joe Vollmer; Vice Chair/19th Ward Alderwoman Marlene Davis, 5th Ward Alderwoman Tammika Hubbard; 13th Ward Alderwoman Beth Murphy; 14th Ward Alderwoman Carol Howard; 16th Ward Alderman Tom Oldenburg, 20th Ward Alderwoman Cara Spencer, 21st Ward Alderman John Collins-Muhammad, 23rd Ward Alderman Joe Vaccaro, 26th Ward Alderwoman Shameem Hubbard, 27th Ward Alderwoman Pam Boyd. Board President Lewis Reed is a voting member of all committees.

Contact Information for all Alderpersons and President Reed.
