Free Public Transportation
Commerce Bank and Metro are bringing free public transportation to St. Louis, at least for a day. Throughout the month of October you can pick up a free metro pass at any Commerce Bank location in St. Louis City, County, or the Metro East. The pass will allow the use of Metrolink and Metro Bus for a whole day, anytime throughout 2007. Don't know where to begin using Metrolink or MetroBus? Go to Metro's home page, they have a feature called "Trip Finder," which allows an easy search of the best way to get anywhere in the St. Louis Region, when you need to get there. Just plug in the origin point, the destination, and the time of departure. "Trip Finder" will figure out how to get there and how long it will take. Highway 40 will be shutting down soon. This is a good opportunity to see how public transportation in St. Louis works. While your using Metro, think about ways the system could be improved. How could it be more efficient? Where else, would you like downtown to be linked to via public transportation?
