Transit Stop Transformation Project

TRANSIT: More than a ride, it’s a place.Image for website

Citizens for Modern Transit and AARP St. Louis are working to activate the space around a Maplewood MetroBus Stop at the corner of Marshall and Manchester with the help of the City of Maplewood, Citizens National Bank and KaBOOM!, a nonprofit headquartered in Washington, D.C., that helps communities build playgrounds for children. This joint initiative, known as the “Transit Stop Transformation Project,” will transform the area at the southwest corner of Manchester Rd. and Marshall Ave. – adjacent to the Citizens National Bank parklet – into a fun, artistic space that encourages active play, cultivates community and increases transit use.
