Local transit enthusiasts to meet along the MetroLink alignment to show their love for the region’s transit system this Friday during the evening commute!
Love will be in the air along the MetroLink alignment on Feb. 13 as CMT and the Saint Louis Football Club team up to host the first-ever Transit Crush event, which is designed to give transit enthusiasts the chance to unite in support of their love for the region’s transit system. That evening, transit riders are invited to meet at various spots along the alignment to create a flash mob-style “crush” onboard the trains during the evening commute.
Prior to the ride, CMT volunteers will be stationed at the various MetroLink stations distributing information on CMT’s Guaranteed Ride Home program, while members of the Saint Louis Football Club will be meeting and greeting with fans at the stations before participating in the crush themselves. The event will wrap-up with a happy hour event at Tom’s Bar and Grill in the Central West End. Throughout the evening, Crush participants will be encouraged to help “blow-up” social media with transit love by posting their Transit Crush selfies and tagging their Twitter, Facebook and Instagram posts with #cmttransitcrush.
Joining the Transit Crush? Make sure you board at one of these times to get in on the fun.
