Another Report Links MetroLink to Rowdy Teens in the Loop

Posted By on Tue, Apr 19, 2011 at 9:43 AM

KMOV-TV (Channel 4) is the latest media outlet to report concerns from Delmar Loop store owners that rowdy teens are venturing into the entertainment district by way of MetroLink.

The station says a MetroLink security guard told their reporter off-camera that it's "overwhelming" when as many as 60 teens pile off the train. Since MetroLink doesn't have turnstiles like public transit in other cities, any one can board the light-rail, regardless of whether they've paid. And state law prohibits anyone under seventeen years old from being fined if they're caught without a ticket.

A spokesman for Metro, meanwhile, contends that troublemakers arrive to the Loop via car, foot and other transportation.
