Justin D.

“My name is Justin I grew up on the east side of Akron and have been using METRO more recently. It is a comfortable ride and the routes come frequently. I love the Dash service.”

“What makes me who I am? The way I treat people, the way I was raised by my parents, and the things I do for my community.”

“The greatest lesson my parents taught me is to stay out of trouble.”

When asked what is your motto in life Justin responded, “Be progressive, positive and keep God first.”

Rebecca N.

“I work at Amazon and travel from Canton to Akron using METRO. I have spent the last three months working 55 to 60 hour weeks. So I have been busy. I am happily married. I have been married for six years. I grew up in Akron and worked in Canton growing up so now it is like the roles have flipped.”

“In my spare time, I craft. I knit toys and clothes. My favorite thing to make is teddy bears, I have nieces and send them the toys that I make. I also make a lot of sweaters.”

When asked what motivates you to work so hard, Rebecca said, “It is something I was taught to do by my grandma. She taught or shall I say forced all her grandkids to learn that and I was no exception. It is something I do to keep her with me.”
