Sai is a fairly new rider to the Metro Transit system.
“I’ve only been riding MetroLink and MetroBus since August, but I really like it,” he said.
Even though he’s only been riding for a few months, Sai is already taking full advantage of Metro to travel throughout the region. He rides MetroLink to the University City-Big Bend Station to get to class. He hops on the #2 Red MetroBus route to get in some shopping at Brentwood Promenade or fitness at the Mid-County YMCA. Sometimes for variety, he rides the #49 Lindbergh to check out the YMCA in Kirkwood.
Like many Metro riders, Sai likes that transit helps him save money. As a student at Washington University, he is able to save with the U-Pass program, which provides unlimited rides on MetroLink and MetroBus for students and faculty at participating colleges and universities in the bi-state area.
And, even for those times when Sai turns to other transportation options, he often finds a way to make Metro a part of his commute.
“I also use Uber to get around town, but on my return trip, I’ll pair it with Metro to save money,” he said. “Metro is convenient.”
