The “Board & Explore St. Louis” summerlong campaign is in full swing and
Citizens for Modern Transit (CMT), Metro Transit and St. Clair County Transit District (SCCTD) are reminding residents about the availability of the $5 Metro Day Pass, which provides an affordable means to explore all the area attractions accessible via MetroLink and MetroBus. A coupon redeemable for a free, $5 Metro Day Pass is included in the “Your Tickets to Board & Explore St. Louis” educational booklets developed by the partners to help residents and visitors learn what attractions can be accessed from various Metro Transit centers. The $5 Metro Day Pass can also be purchased on the Transit app, at Ticket Vending Machines at any MetroLink Station or Transit Center, or by visiting the MetroStore at 8th and Pine in downtown St. Louis.
A “Your Tickets to Board & Explore St. Louis” booklet can be digitally downloaded here or picked up at one of nearly 200 local businesses, attractions and hotels. Those interested in having one mailed to their attention can call Citizens for Modern Transit at 314-231-7272 or email their name and mailing address to email@example.com. These booklets, along with oversized “Board & Explore St. Louis” artwork displayed at many of the Metro Transit Centers, promote area attractions near public transportation and feature a QR code with walking directions from the transit stops to these destinations. Individuals can also use QR code or go directly to this link to enter to win gift cards to these and other area hot spots over the summer months.
“This campaign provides a valuable opportunity for the partnering organizations to interact with riders, strengthen relationships and reinforce their collective commitment to a safe, comfortable, customer-focused transit experience,” commented Kimberly Cella, executive director of Citizens for Modern Transit. “We encourage area residents to get out and explore all the community has to offer via transit.”
