The advocacy group Metropolitan Area Transit Riders Alliance
of St. Louis (MATRA-STL) recently launched a website
drawing attention to its mission of bringing much-needed funding to Metro.
As MATRA founder Edward Williams writes:
We will fight for the public
transit need of all citizens of the St. Louis Metropolitan Area regardless if you are
transit dependent, non transit dependent, take the bus or train.
Fair enough. The cash-strapped Metro needs all the help it can get these days with budget costs forcing the agency to cut bus routes and limit MetroLink service. But my question for MATRA is this: What city is that on your homepage? It's definitely not St. Louis
The skyline seems smaller than St. Louis. And I don't know of any bridge in the area with cool, blue lights. Hmm. Smaller, yet hipper, than St. Louis. Could it be Austin
What's your guess?
