Please reserve September 17, 2020 for the Citizens for Modern Transit’s 36th Annual Meeting & Awards Event. Due to the pandemic’s impact on our daily lives, the CMT Annual Meeting will look a little different this year as a virtual event. However, we hope you will consider joining us to help celebrate transit wins in St. Louis. CMT will be honoring several individuals and organizations for their commitment and leadership in support of the St. Louis’ transit system.
CMT invites you to join us on September 17, 2020, for our 36th Annual Meeting & Awards Event, which will be held virtually for the first time. While this year’s format will be different, we remain committed to delivering an exciting program that reinforces the importance of public transit access and recognizes those who are championing transit in the St. Louis area.
We will be celebrating initiatives tied to a transit-oriented development, a new vision for MetroBus stops and the role transit plays in workforce development. In addition, our keynote address, titled, “From Agency to Advocacy: Why Transit is Essential,” will feature insight from Bi-State Board of Commissioners Chair Rose Windmiller and CMT Board Chair June McAllister Fowler on transit’s role in economic recovery, social equity and workforce development.
Since CMT’s establishment in 1985, it has grown to represent more than 22,000 constituents, including transit riders, major employers, academic institutions, labor and community organizations and members like yourself. Throughout FY2020, CMT’s advocacy moved into action. Transit stayed at the center of many regional discussions. Safety and security took significant steps forward, and expansion plans for light rail in Illinois began to come together. Critical federal funding was secured for transit, and workforce development partnerships were formed to provide job access. And for the first time, CMT established permanent placemaking through the Maplewood Transit Stop Transformation Project, which was completed in partnership with AARP in St. Louis.
