Encouraging Use of Public Transportation
Incentivize residents of St. Louis City and County to try transit by:
- Implementing a ridership program that educates individuals on how to use the system for work or education trips and demonstrates the possibilities for job access and educational trips and potential personal cost savings;
- Improving bus tracking to enhance the ease with which bus transit can fit into one’s schedule;
- Creating a reloadable transit card that obviates the need for exact change for each ride; and
- Enhancing the public transit amenities among current and future bus routes (e.g., bus shelters and benches).
When possible use public transit as an alternative to commuting or exploring the region. Participate in existing programs intended to increase ridership; visit Citizens for Modern Transit for more information on trying our local transit system: http://cmt-stl.org/programs/cmts-try-ride-program/.
