Get On Board Day is a national awareness and advocacy day that is all about encouraging people to support public transportation and showcases the benefits it brings to communities.
The Piedmont Authority for Regional Transportation (PART), Greensboro Transit Authority (GTA), High Point Transit System (HPTS) and Winston-Salem Transit Authority (WSTA) celebrated on April 25th with other public transportation systems nationwide to participate in National Get On Board Day
Thank you to all the passengers, community leaders, and to the local media for the huge success of Get On Board for Public Transit Day! We were happy to see so many new faces on the buses and see public transportation highlighted on the TV and print news stations. We held a passenger outreach event at the CTC during the morning thanking passengers for riding. You can see all the photos taken on our Facebook Page.
Here is a few of the great stories from local media:
Sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), the 2019 National Get On Board Day is a day that encourages people to support public transportation and showcases the benefits it brings to communities. Each weekday in the U.S., 34 million people board public transportation.
Public transportation transforms communities and the lives of the people living in them by spurring economic development, promoting sustainable lifestyles and providing a higher quality of life. Every segment of American society — individuals, families, communities, and businesses—benefits from public transportation.
