Madison County Transit (MCT) is proposing to eliminate select express trips to and from downtown St. Louis on the #5 Tri-City regional due to low ridership. As a result, one trip on the #20 Granite City– Pontoon Beach Shuttle would be eliminated. Trips to Emerson Park Metrolink Station are proposed in lieu of downtown St. Louis. 

Due to rider feedback, MCT has made changes to the original May 2024 Service Change proposal regarding the #5 Tri-City Regional. See the updated PDF draft in red below.
