More than 200 public transit agencies and organizations will be on hand to host various activities, events and special promotions across the country to highlight the societal and economic benefits of public transportation.
Furthermore, on Get on Board Day more than 20 participating cities and transit agencies will offer free rides or pre-loaded transit fare cards to riders.
“We are thrilled to celebrate the inaugural Get on Board Day with those who directly benefit from public transportation,” said David M. Stackrow, APTA Chair and board member of the Capital District Transportation Authority. “We look forward to seeing so many riders and organizations get on board to showcase how public transit helps people and communities thrive.”
“The value of public transportation is shown through the many benefits it brings to our nation and its communities both large and small,” said APTA President and CEO Paul P. Skoutelas. “Increased investment is a critical component of improving the mobility options that boost the American economy.”
