Metro reopens stops at the Grand Ave. Bridge
Metro will reopen its bus and MetroLink stops at the Grand Ave. Bridge tomorrow morning.
While crews were renovating the Grand Ave. Bridge, Metro was sprucing up its bus and train stops.
Upgrades include new seating at the bus stop along with redone elevators and stairs to the MetroLink station below the bridge.
Metro spokeswoman Patti Beck said the stop is a key part of Metro’s busiest route.
“it is all part of building a better transit experience,” Beck said. “If you can easily access the system, whether it’s for work or school, the better it is all the way around.”
There are also 58 new parking spots for commuters and Beck says the bus and MetroLink schedules won’t be impacted by the stops opening up again.
Reopening the stops also means an end to detours for riders on the 70 Grand, Twin Oaks Express and the 410 Eureka Express MetroBus routes.
