Will they ever be on the east side (Belleville)?
The mobile screening van will just be at Grand MetroLink Station, Riverview Transit Center, Civic Center Transit Center and the North County Transit Center. All are accessible by riding Metro, with Civic Center being the closest option if you are located in Belleville.
