Citizens for Modern Transit Celebrates 35 Years of Advocacy July 31

By on April 17, 2019

Citizens for Modern Transit, founded in 1985, will be celebrating 35 years of advocating for public transit on July 31, 2019 at Innovation Hall adjacent to the Cortex MetroLink Station.

Three and a half decades ago CMT began its mission to introduce MetroLink to the St. Louis metropolitan area. Since its inception, the region now has more than 46 miles and 38 stations. Over the past 35 years, CMT members have played key roles in the expansion of the system, the passage of funding measures for transit, feasibility studies, safety plans, ridership programming and more. The organization continues to extol the benefits well beyond the transit trip from Point A to Point B to building communities, creating access, improving equity and moving the region in the right direction.
