Passenger Profile: Lisa
Metro Transit has been there for Lisa throughout the years, whether she’s needed it for work or fun. One of the first times Lisa remembers using Metro was as a teenager. She would ride to the ball game, visit the Gateway Arch and see the riverfront, and make a day out of being in downtown.
These days, Lisa uses Metro for more practical matters. She rides Metro to get to work, the store, to vote and to doctor appointments, which has all only become more important during the COVID-19 pandemic. Lisa has been able to rely on Metro Transit to get to her work at her essential job and to important healthcare appointments over the past few months.
She often gets to ride with friends and coworkers, and you can typically find her on the #21 Watson Road, #11 Chippewa or #70 Grand MetroBus routes. Check out our Q&A below to learn more about Lisa.
