Citizens for Modern Transit (CMT) and AARP in St. Louis recently unveiled a new MetroBus Stop in partnership with the City of Maplewood, Citizens National Bank and KABOOM!, a national non-profit that partners with communities to expand play opportunities for kids in the St. Louis region. The project, known as the “Transit Stop Transformation Project,” is now complete and open to the public. Residents can take advantage of the newly renovated space – located adjacent to the Citizens National Bank parklet – and see firsthand how it encourages active play, cultivates community and increases transit use.  Find out what the keys to success were in bringing this vision to reality.
