ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - For many area residents, the thought of using mass transit comes with a mass number of questions like - What route do I take? How long does it take? Where do I purchase tickets? What if I take the MetroLink to work and later need my car? To help combat this issue and help area residents overcome some of the perceived hurdles associated with using public transit for the workday commute, Citizens for Modern Transit is introducing a new Try & Ride program. The program is available to any Missouri or Illinois resident who is a new rider to the MetroLink or MetroBus.

Kim Cella, Executive Director of Citizens for Modern Transit  talks more about it.

Registration opens today at www.cmt-stl.org.

This program is sponsored in part by the St. Clair County Transit District.  For more information about Citizens for Modern Transit and the new Try & Ride program, visit www.cmt-stl.org or call (314) 231-7272. You can also find them on Facebook or follow them on Twitter @cmt_stl.
