Placemaking around Transit – Much more than just a ride

placemakingstlTaking the MetroBus or MetroLink in St. Louis? Is your bus stop or MetroLink station located in a PLACE where you could live, work and play?   Your transit station could be a place to meet up with neighbors and friends for coffee and a snack, a convenient place to grab groceries on your way home, a peaceful garden to read a book in, an active and engaging corridor that connects to your neighborhood.

Help create places you want to be along your commute on transit!  Join CMT & AARP in St. Louis in 2016 as they take a closer look at how to make transit in our community a public space that promotes health, opportunity, and well-being for transit users, and for all who live, work and play around transit stations.  

Through a series of Walk Audits this fall led by Arcturis, we will spotlight the North Hanley, Forest Park and Delmar Stations – looking at ways to activate the space to create safer, more vibrant areas.   These will be half day audits.  Times will vary, but each audit will run approximately 3-4 hours starting in the morning at each station and then convening at a secondary location for follow up discussion.  Detailed information to be released shortly.
