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) will join with other public transportation systems nationwide to participate in National Get On Board Day on Thursday, April 25.
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.
