His commute begins on the #5 Tri-City Regional Madison County Transit bus in Madison, Ill. He rides the bus to the Emerson Park MetroLink Station and takes the train to downtown St. Louis.
Clinton, 23, said he enjoys listening to music while on MetroLink and MetroBus vehicles. He’s been using public transportation all his life.
Clinton uses Metro to visit St. Patrick’s Center, a nonprofit organization that provides housing, employment and health opportunities for the homeless or those whose are at risk of becoming homeless.
“Metro is my way,” he said. “It’s my source of transportation.”
“My legs have gotten too tired,” he said. “That’s why I’ve started riding the bus, and using MetroLink.”
In addition to getting to and from St. Patrick’s Center, Clinton also uses Metro to run errands, do a little shopping and get some fresh air and visit family.
“I like that Metro gets me where I need to go,” he said.
