With this “job” you get to try out lots of interesting new things each year. I always say I only talk about businesses that will help you save money or enjoy life more. Well, I found one that does BOTH: the “Try and Ride” Program from Citizens for Modern Transit. I have to admit, in the beginning, I did not expect to fully buy into the mass transit concept.
Riding the MetroLink to and from work was one of the most uniquely cool things I did this summer (and I took the family to Disney World this summer!). In fact, riding the “Link” is just as efficiently awesome as the much lauded Disney tram-system. The MetroLink is that good – fast, on-time, clean, safe and cheap.
But nothing can match the friendly mood and sense of community you get on our MetroLink. I didn’t expect to talk to my fellow riders that much and the first time I didn’t. But after a while you realize you’ve all got somewhere to be, some deadline to meet and you have all chosen the hottest travel technology in St. Louis. For some reason, there’s some kind of kinship to that – I can’t fully explain it. I laughed, talked and listened a ton during my 2 month trial with the “Try and Ride” program. And I always felt better when I got to work than I did before. Mass Transit is fun!
I hope you’ll just check it out. Citizens for Modern Transit’s new “Try and Ride” Program. Let them plan it for you and make it easy. The first month is FREE.
