Public transportation in the St. Louis are will be buses on the local streets and highways for the next 10-15 years. The improvements suggested in this Mass Transit Program are modest and designed to strengthen the existing bus service. This brief report reflects the view that the need for a public acceptance plan is not to try to promote and sell major transit improvement to the public, but to promote and sell public mass transportation with the relatively modest improvement which have been recommended and to gain support for the necessary financing. The report identifies and very briefly describes the five basic themes that comprise the public acceptance effort, namely; public transportation as a Public Service; Efficient Operation; Improvements in Servie; Environmnental Improvements; and Equity of Service. Other reports of the St. Louis Mass Transit Program are: "Transit Needs Analysis, Volume I: Transit Needs Assessment" (UMTA-IT-09-0067-79-4); "Transit Needs Analysis, Volume I: Transit Needs Assessment Appendixes (UMTA-IT-09-0067-79-5); "Transit Needs Analysis, Volume II: Procedural Mannual" (UMTA-IT-09-0067-79-6); "Mass Transit Program for the Saint Louis Metropolitan Area" (UMTA-IT-09-0067-79-7). /UMTA/
