Citizens for Modern Transit (CMT) – the St. Louis region’s transit advocacy organization – has announced plans for its next virtual “Talking Transit” event, which is set for Wednesday, Jan. 19, at 8:30 a.m. via ZOOM. This event will highlight the trajectory of transit in the St. Louis region in 2022. The event is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is required and can be completed online.
Those in attendance will get updates on various transit projects currently underway, including light rail expansion to MidAmerica Airport, the expanded Northside/Southside Study with St. Louis City and St. Louis County, and the Brickline Greenway’s integration with transit. The discussion will feature a panel that includes Patrick Judge, Principal, Gonzalez Companies and project manager for the IL LRT project; Jennifer Obertino, Senior Vice President, AECOM, and lead on the Northside/Southside Study; and Mark Vogl, Project Manager-Planning, Great Rivers Greenway, and lead on the Brickline Greenway.
“There is a lot to be excited about as it relates to transit in the St. Louis region,” commented Kimberly Cella, executive director of Citizens for Modern Transit. “We encourage those with an interest in the impacts of public transit access to join this online forum.”
CMT hosts quarterly “Talking Transit” events to keep members, elected officials, stakeholders, transit riders and others in the loop on issues and efforts influencing the local transit system. These educational gatherings feature guest speakers and panel discussions addressing a wide range of topics, including transit-oriented development, safety and security, best practices, service changes and more.
