“The past 12 months have been a year of connecting people and places with transit. This organization prides itself in being able to make this connection for St. Louis through our events and programs, advocacy and education. Transit has the ability to not only move people from Point A to Point B, but connect people to people, people to their communities and our communities to this region,” said Don C. Musick, III, Chair of CMT Board of Directors, in his remarks at the event.
