Valentine’s Day is just a great day to ‘show’ your love or ‘crush’ on transit,” said Kim Cella, MPTA Executive Director.

“We want riders to come out in droves so that we can pack the buses and trains in support of transit use in Missouri,” said Cella.

“Transportation is kind of like electricity and water.  You don’t think about it until it’s not there.  Then you think about it a lot.”   said William Osborne, SMTS Executive Director 1973 – 2014.
