Rodney is a transit veteran. He’s been riding Metro Transit for over 30 years, and uses MetroBus and MetroLink to get him where he needs to go. You can normally find him on the #16 City Limits, #97 Delmar and #94 Page, or MetroLink.

Rodney appreciates that Metro gets him where he needs to go since he doesn’t have a car, and he loves our compassionate drivers that go above and beyond to provide a great riding experience. He remembers fondly spending his commutes with a driver that kept him entertained with his daily jokes.

One of the first times Rodney rode MetroBus was as a kid – his mom used to take him downtown to the old Famous Barr.
