Investment in public transportation will lead to 50,700 jobs per $1 billion invested, according to a recent study by the American Public Transportation Association.
The project transforms the concrete area between the bus bays and MetroLink entrance into an interactive, playful, engaging space that gives a nod to the history of music in East St. Louis and makes it part of the fabric of the community. In addition, a mural on the pedestrian overpass depicts the historic importance of music in East St. Louis. The community event set for 9 a.m. at the station, 929 N. 15th Street, will feature formal remarks, the ability to explore the new space, local music, food, fun and more.
CMT leads efforts for an integrated, affordable, and convenient public transportation system with light rail expansion as the critical component that will drive economic growth to improve quality of life in the St. Louis region.
