Remember MetroLink Prom? Tonight (May 8th) is the follow-up, since Prop M failed and the St. Louis region has undergone the loss of 44% of its public transit system. Come mourn your favorite departed bus route with us at a funeral procession that’s half New Orleans jazz funeral, half Victorian mourning event. Please wear black!
We will gather at the Convention Center MetroLink station at 7:30pm and parade around Downtown, east of 14th, where bus service has been cut due to budget constraints. Musicians are encouraged to bring instruments to play. And please consider bringing a eulogy to your favorite bus route, or to the system itself. We will be carrying a bus casket, and distributing wailing cloths and prayer cards. We will also be scattering the ashes of old bus schedules.
This is happening rain or shine–nothin’ like a little rain to underscore the tragedy of our loss. Bring your black umbrellas!
Any questions, call (312) 545-3107!
