September 1 marks the kick-off of Fiscal year 2017 for Citizens for Modern Transit, and we have some great events and programming planned to increase the number of St. Louisans on board with transit and help move transit forward in the region. We are excited to share all of these great events with CMT members and friends.
We know public transit is the key to bringing our community together. It connects individuals to jobs, communities and each other. We can move forward both incremental projects and a larger vision for transit, but only as funding allows. CMT’s ‘job one’ is to work with area stakeholders, elected officials and residents to define the next priority project(s) and find a funding mechanism(s) to ensure transit connects us to our communities and to each other. In addition, don’t miss CMT’s programming for this year including expansion of the Try & Ride Program to academic trips, Placemaking efforts around MetroLink Stations, CMT #TransitFoward events and Reports to the Community on transit issues throughout the year.
If you believe transit is a priority for this region, please consider joining CMT today to help move transit forward. Join online today! With that said, we hope you will join us for some of the upcoming events on the calendar for FY17.
