Metro to host events for Seniors to sign up for Reduced Fare Permits

Eclipse 7Metro is hosting special reduced fare registration events for older adults in May at eight area Schnucks stores in St. Louis County. These events are an easy and convenient way for senior citizens to sign up for a Senior Reduced Fare Permit so they can save money and take advantage of half-price tickets on the Metro transit system to travel around the region. Great opportunity for seniors participating in the CMT Ten Toe Program!
