Metro Hosting First Workshop Tonight to Discuss Future of Public Transit in St. Louis


Metro tonight is hosting the first of five forums scheduled for this month to outline its long-range plans.

This evening's meeting, open to the public, runs from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the St. Louis County Library Headquarters on Lindbergh Boulevard.

The forums -- billed as "workshops" -- will examine Metro's five, ten and thirty year development plans. Metro is asking St. Louis County voters to approve a half-cent sales tax in April that will fund public transit expansion in the region.

Metro is also planning a sixth "web seminar" later this month to accommodate people who can't attend the five physical workshops slated for this month. More information on the meetings and Metro's plans here.
