UT student Chris Tosh began riding MetroRail this semester. According to him, the journey was an improvement over how he used to get from the Kramer area to the UT campus. Chris used to have to take an hour-long bus ride to get to campus. Now, he bikes in to Kramer Station, rides MetroRail to MLK, Jr. Station and then takes the 465 MLK Jr. Connector to the UT campus, or he bikes in.
“I’d heard MetroRail was running, I just did not know that the station was close by,” Chris said.
“The train is faster, because during rush hour you don’t hit any of the traffic,” Chris said. He continued, “I definitely like this better than the bus trip.”
