“I catch the #104 in Twinsburg from Creekside Park and Ride, which connects me to the #24 at the Transit Center. The bus leaves Creekside at 6:30 a.m., which is earlier than I’d have to leave if I were driving into work, but worth it.”
Theresa works in the Finance Department at METRO. While she is still learning the ins and outs of the company, Theresa said she is no stranger to riding public transportation.
“In Cleveland I rode every mode. I either caught the bus, light rail or heavy rail, and I would catch the Akron METRO bus or the PARTA bus. The difference at METRO is the operators really get to know you and they look out for you by making sure you get where you need to be on time. It’s less stress for me not having to drive in traffic and in bad weather.”
“My original #104 driver is now my #24 evening driver — John. Now my #104 morning driver is Lynn. Melissa drives the #104 in the evening.”
