Many people can probably name large St. Louis venues and businesses that are easily accessible by MetroLink and MetroBus (think Busch Stadium or Barnes-Jewish Hospital), but what about your favorite ice cream shop? Or record store? Or jogging trail? Today on Twitter, St. Louis transit fan @U2Acro posted her Yelp.com list of Tremendous Transit Tips in St. Louis. She listed everything from some of her favorite restaurants and coffee shops, to hair salons, urgent care clinics, and music venues. It’s a great list for those who are curious about some of the businesses that are accessible by bus or train in St. Louis. Or more specifically, what are the businesses and places riders in the area like to go to via public transit.
What would you put on your transit list? Do you wish more businesses offered a discount for transit riders? If there was an app that offered discounts for transit riders, would you use it? Would you like to see more information about transit-accessible businesses on Metro’s website? What role do you see local businesses playing in helping promote their available transit options?
