PROGRAM: For over 65 years the Bi-State Development Agency has partnered with private and public organizations on hundreds of economic development projects in the St. Louis region. John Nations, President and CEO of Bi-State, will introduce some of their services and programs that could help your community in planning and implementing economic develop initiatives. In addition, Bi-State is the St. Louis region’s transit agency. Jessica Medford-Miller, Assistant Planning Director, will provide an update on, “Metro Reimagined,” a project designed to identify and implement improvements to Metro Bus service in the St. Louis region. Metro Reimagined will examine where people travel, why they travel and how they want to get where they are going. The first step was a comprehensive analysis of existing bus operations and services. Next, Metro will apply its findings to improve the customer experience, increase access to destinations, and provide creative transportation solutions that better serve our region’s needs.
You can help. Metro’s Allocation Game is an online tool you can use to voice your preferences about the types of improvements you would like to see within a limited budget. Check it out, and help Metro to tailor its service to the transportation needs of current and future transit riders.
