Metro Transit is providing access to public transit to St. Louis County residents whose vehicles are buried under debris. Metro Transit travels the affected communities and will help tornado victims get to where they need to go via MetroBus and MetroLink.
Metro Transit has donated 1,000 transit passes to St. Louis County for distribution to residents who need transportation as a result of the tornadoes which hit Friday night. Each pass is good for two hours on MetroBus and MetroLink and is intended to help people who have no other way to get to some important destinations like banks, pharmacies and grocery stores.
Starting today, Wednesday, April 27, 2011
Residents should call the United Way at 2-1-1 for information on how to request one of the two-hour transit passes. They will be directed to the closest distribution site to where they live.
Information about MetroBus and MetroLink schedules can be found at www.metrostlouis.org or by calling 314-231-2345.
Also on the night of the storm, Metro was available to help area residents by transporting nursing home residents to area shelters.
