CMT Talking Transit: Metro Transit Security Plan Update

Citizens for Modern Transit’s upcoming “Talking Transit” event, sponsored in part by the Lochmueller Group, Metro Transit, and St. Louis Regional Chamber, will provide an update on the transit security efforts underway including a panel of Metro Transit’s new Public Safety leadership team. Jim Wild, executive director of East-West Gateway Council of Governments and sponsor of the MetroLink Security Assessment Phase I and II, will provide a brief overview of the Transit Security Report Card developed during Phase II of the security assessment. A panel of Bi-State’s new security personnel will discuss the vision for transit public safety moving forward including: Stephen Berry, General Manager of Metro Transit Public Safety; Kevin Scott, Director of Public Safety and Vernon Summers, Manager of Public Safety.

In an effort to actively address local challenges and continue to help our community regain confidence in safe and secure rides aboard transit MetroLink, the East-West Gateway Council of Governments’ Board of Directors authorized an 8-month, $400,000 MetroLink Security Assessment in March 2018. Phase II was initiated last summer to look at implementation and metrics.
