Green Line Schedule Change due to Bridge Construction:
 In an effort to alleviate overcrowding on Green line buses due to construction on the bridge across Forest Park Parkway, beginning Tuesday, September 4, additional buses will be temporarily added to the route.   View the temporary green line schedule (PDF)


The parking spaces along Forsyth Blvd have been designated as “perimeter red” spaces, which require a red permit Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. 
Outside of those hours, no permit is required.


The West Campus shuttle’s east end bus stop is now in the parking lot in front of Goldfarb Hall.
This will replace the bus stop on the south side of Forsyth, eliminating the need to cross Forsyth.


No parking on Hoyt Drive
Parking is prohibited along the north and south entries to Hoyt Drive. These areas are for drop off and pick up only. Cars left unattended are compromising the designated fire lanes and blocking traffic. Those in violation will be towed.


Between the hours of 5 p.m. to 7 a.m., no permit is required to park in any yellow space in any zone.


Reminder – East End of the Danforth Campus closed to parking
Parking is not available on the east end of the Danforth Campus but spaces are available in the core of campus, on the South 40, and at West Campus.
