Cortex MetroLink Station is first one built in over a decade.
The Cortex MetroLink Station and Chouteau Greenway project were funded through a partnership between the Federal Transit Administration, Cortex, Washington University, BJC HealthCare, Great Rivers Greenway, the City of St. Louis, Citizens for Modern Transit, Metro Transit and Bi-State Development. Representatives from all the partners joined federal, state and local leaders and hundreds of community members to celebrate the opening of the 38th station on the region’s light rail system. The newest station, located between Boyle and Sarah Avenues, provides an additional stop in the rapidly growing area between the Grand Station and Central West End Station.
“Access to reliable transportation is essential to attracting new businesses to our region, and this new station and greenway are amazing benefits for companies and organizations here in the Cortex Innovation Community. The revitalization of this entire area is one of the best things going on in the St. Louis region and in this country,” said Bi-State Development President and Chief Executive Officer John Nations.
Bi-State Development operates the Metro Transit system for the St. Louis region.
