While Jeannetta may have a long transit commute, she doesn’t mind it. It’s her time to sit back, relax and let the slow jams ease her way into the work day.
“I like listening to music,” she said. “I like R&B – Sam Smith, Adele, Ella Mai, H.E.R. It’s a long bus ride. I get to listen to an hour’s worth.”
To get to those tunes, Jeannetta boards the #14 19th & Central MetroBus route near her home in East St. Louis and rides to the 5th & Missouri MetroLink Station. From there, she boards a westbound Blue Line train to the Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 MetroLink Station. The last leg of her commute involves boarding the #21 Watson Rd to get to her job in Kirkwood.
“It’s easy,” she said. “Metro gets you there when you need to be there.”
Jeannetta has been a Metro Transit for about two years and doesn’t own a vehicle. Instead, she relies on MetroBus and MetroLink to navigate the bi-state region.
“It’s only $3,” she said. “It’s a good ride.”
