You never saw/heard of it, including while you were in St. Louis . They have bus stops here just like anywhere else. You don't "hail" buses.

If you come to St. Louis expecting little Chicago, yes, you will be disappointed. But it is a nice city. Downtown has come a long way but still has a long way to go, unfortunately. Outside of downtown, you have very active neighborhoods with the corner shops, neighborhood restaurants, etc.

San Francisco was a nice city I thought, but spending 3 days alone downtown didn't exactly give me a great picture of it....but, I'm not going to come on this board and trash it because I didn't get out and truly explore the city.

I just find nothing appealing or charming about the city, and saw so many parts that are just plain dilapidated and third-world. There are definitely good spots, but the city as a whole and the infrastructure just says "poor and deterioting". I ate at some great places while I was there, but then I'd leave the restaurant, ride along in the passenger seat, and find the city as a whole to be rather miserable.
I didnt know i stayed in miserable third world city lol im so glad these are opinions lol
