April 25 is National Get on Board Day and DART is encouraging North Texans to leave their cars at home and ride DART instead.
Sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), the 2019 National Get on Board Day is an event that encourages people to support public transportation and showcases the benefits transit brings to communities. Each weekday in the U.S., 34 million people board public transportation.
Additionally, public transportation is a cornerstone of local economies in urban, suburban and rural communities. In fact, transit helps to make a community economically prosperous and competitive. Every $1 invested in public transportation generates approximately $4 in economic returns, powering community growth and revitalization.
Every year, 62.2 million people get on board a DART bus or train. On April 25, National Get on Board Day, why not join them and find out why?
