Six Stories, One City: Margarita's Transit Story

We hope you were inspired by Natalia's transit story that we released last week as part of our Six Stories, One City transit series featuring six diverse users of transit in Greater Charlotte. Today we're sharing Margarita's story. Margarita is a mother, immigrant, and small business owner. She rides the bus to make deliveries for her business and to travel with her children.

When asked why she values transit, Margarita said, "It's good because my children enjoy riding the bus and light rail. For my kids it is something fun to do. When I tell them we are going uptown, they say "Yay, let's take route 9! Let's ride the train!" Sometimes I take them to the library uptown, Imaginon. It's a longer trip, and my kids love the city's landscape, and enjoy what they see."
