More choices for better transportation

St. Louis station taking shape

The mobile homes which became the St. Louis railroad station for over a decade became known as the AmShack. It was a shameful departure from the cavernous and ornate Union Station which is now a hotel and shopping mall.

Finally, the new transportation center is nearing completion. The Post Dispatch has the construction update. Can we hold on till March?

The project includes rebuilding nearby streets and creating a passenger drop-off loop in front of the terminal. A MetroLink station and a Metro bus transfer point are just a few paces away from the new center, providing a link to public transportation.

The new terminal will feature 10 bays for Greyhound’s buses, replacing the existing depot on 13th Street.
