There are several significant transit expansion and service innovation proposals that have received extensive review and already enjoy substantial support in the St. Louis region. Leading examples include the Northside/Southside light rail project, Bus Rapid Transit service, and the St. Louis Streetcar initiative. An overall lack of funding, however, has prevented any of these (and similar) game-changing public transit projects from moving forward. By commissioning this Transit Financing Study, Citizens for Modern Transit intended to begin the process of building a case for long-term, sustainable capital and operational funding for greatly enhanced public transit services in the St. Louis region.
This program will present the findings from CMT’s Transit Financing Study and will provide the opportunity to hear from local stakeholders on transit and funding options for the region.
