Nadia is no stranger to public transportation.
“I use Metro to get everywhere,” she said.
Recently, Nadia put a new transit commute into motion. This particular trip begins near the intersection of Arsenal and Compton in South City, where she boards the #30 Arsenal en route to the Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 MetroLink Station. Once there, Nadia hops on a Blue Line train and rides to the Clayton MetroLink Station to catch the #58 Clayton-West County. Then, it’s a short trip to Frontenac, where she works at a nearby restaurant.
In addition to work, Nadia relies on Metro Transit to get to school at the Forest Park campus of St. Louis Community College. Nadia is a freshman and is currently working on her general studies. Since Nadia is a student at St. Louis Community College, she’s eligible to take advantage of the Metro U-Pass program, which provides free transit passes for students, faculty and staff.
Nadia depends on Metro Transit because she doesn’t own a car; however, it’s not the only reason she’s on board.
“It’s just easier,” she said.
