Citizens for Modern Transit Announces Support of MetroLink Green Line

During the most recent gathering of its Board of Directors, Citizens for Modern Transit’s leadership unanimously adopted a resolution in support of the Green Line. This proposed alignment is set to include 10 stations and 5.8 miles of in-street light rail running from Jefferson Avenue at Chippewa Street north to Natural Bridge Avenue in the City of St. Louis, while connecting with the current MetroLink system via a transfer station.

The Green Line adheres to the organization’s criteria for support as it has been designed to preserve and enhance existing neighborhoods, promote unity, achieve regional objectives, reinforce existing public and private investments, and provide improved transportation for a substantiated number of people. The project will also provide equitable access to jobs, help revitalize neighborhoods and support Justice40 Initiative principles.

Through Citizens for Modern Transit’s endorsement of the Green Line as a priority for light rail expansion, ther organization will work to build awareness about this potential project and the merit of transit in these communities and to the entire region.

Citizens for Modern Transit is the region’s transit advocacy organization. It was established in 1985 to help bring light rail to St. Louis and continues to champion, challenge, encourage and advocate for the expansion of a safe, integrated, convenient and cost-effective public transportation system that drives economic growth and improves the quality of life in the St. Louis region.
