CMT and AARP St. Louis Great Race 2017 Rescheduled for June 14th

Posted on 04/09/17 by JoAnn Rose, AARP Missouri

NEW DATE!!!  AARP in St. Louis and Citizens for Modern Transit invite all to join us on June 14th at the Wabash Station, 6005 Delmar Blvd., at 4 p.m. as the race between Team MetroLink, Team MetroBus, Team Bike and Team Carshare crosses the Finish Line for a celebration and Metro Market including food, fun and more.

The Metro Market is an opportunity for AARP in St. Louis and Citizens for Modern Transit to continue our placemaking work to create a ‘pop-up’ visual about the opportunities around transit in the St. Louis region including retail, dining and entertainment.

Last Fall, AARP in St. Louis and CMT teamed up to host a series of walk audits at key MetroLink Stations – North Hanley, Forest Park and Delmar MetroLink Stations – to consider placemaking around transit.   The goal was to look at the impact of activating these spaces for current and future riders and the implications those changes would have on livability around St. Louis transit stations, including perceptions of safety and security. The lights are now on at the Wabash Station as well as other exterior lighting around the building shedding light on areas around the Delmar Station which were pointed out during the audit process as lending to the negative perceptions of safety. Vegetation facing Des Peres at the station has been thinned as well to create better sight lines. The Metro Market at the historic Wabash Station is one more step in creating a visual “pop-up” of what could be around transit.

Special  thanks to community partners: Washington University, Great Rivers Greenway, and Forest Park Forever. Special thanks to the sponsors of this event: ATU Local 788, CBB, Enterprise Carshare, Metro and St. Louis Regional Chamber.
