Metro helps Michelle avoid the daily stress of rush hour.
“I don’t like to drive,” she said. “People are crazy.”
That’s why Michelle relies on Metro to get her where she needs to go. A long-time bus rider, Michelle made the switch to MetroLink when it opened in 1993.

“You can’t beat the convenience and cost of it,” she said.
