#97 MetroBus on Locust…Temporarily

March 10, 2014 Downtown, Featured, Public Transit 1 Comment

Metro’s #97 MetroBus route is commonly known as the “Delmar”, and it does go down Delmar west of Vandeventer. It also runs on McKnight, Ladue, Maryland, Central, Shaw Park, Meramec, Old Bonhomme, Vandeventer, Enright, Spring, Washington, and 14th. The route doesn’t include Locust St., but utility construction on Washington Ave meant the #94 & #97 buses had to be rerouted.  The #94 got pushed a block north to Delmar and the #97 got pushed a block south to Locust.

I took the image above right after I exited my building. I love seeing buses going up and down my street! What I haven’t seen during the last couple of month of the reroute is temporary bus stops. Bus routes have flexility that streetcar routes don’t, but that flexility comes with the responsibility to mark stops. The current alert doesn’t mention stops:

#97 Construction at Washington and 20th Street – Revision #4

DETAILS: Due to construction at Washington and 20th Street, the following reroutes will be in effect for approximately a month.

REROUTE DETAILS: #97 DELMAR

EASTBOUND: Regular route to Washington and 21st, right on 21st, left on Locust, Right on 14th to regular route.

WESTBOUND: Regular route to 14th and Locust, left on Locust, right on 21st, left on Washington to regular route.

Stops on Washington at 14th/15th, 16th, 18th, and 20th are all closed with no visible replacements. — Steve Patterson

    I used to ride that one every day. It was super convenient: stopped literally in front of my apartment on Delmar and again four blocks from my job downtown.

April 24, 1953 - About 100 policemen shot it out with daring bandits from Chicago at the Southwest Bank on Kingshighway. Robber Frank Vito shot himself to death. Police wounded John Frederick and William Scholl. Officer Robert Heitz was wounded. In 1958, directors Charles Guggenheim and John Stix re-staged the hold up for the United Artists Movie The Great St. Louis Bank Robbery. Steve McQueen played the getaway driver.
