“I definitely took that opportunity not to put wear and tear on my car,” she said.
And for eight years now, Dyanna has relied on MetroLink to get her to and from work each day, and keep her car out of rush hour traffic. To get to work, Dyanna boards the train at the Fairview Heights MetroLink Station and exits at the Central West End MetroLink Station. From there, she walks to the Central West End Transit Center where an employee shuttle picks her up and drops her off at her final destination.
Dyanna also uses MetroLink to get to school, events and conventions in downtown St. Louis, and to see concerts and games at the Scottrade Center.
“It’s very convenient,” she said.
In addition to being a smart economic move, Dyanna also uses MetroLink for its stress-free qualities.
“I don’t have to sit in traffic,” she said. “I don’t have to worry about other cars. I can sit. I can read or I can chat with someone.”
As far as advice, Dyanna recommends new riders jump in and give it a try.
“Don’t hesitate,” she said, “just get on board.”
