St. Louis, MO – St. Louis' Bi-State Development Agency is changing its name. Beginning February 1st, it will simply be known as Metro .
The bus, van and light rail operator says the new name will better describe what the agency is and what it does. It says it's the final step in a process that began with the debut of Metrolink ten years ago. Services, rates and routes will not be affected by the name change.
