Get on Board Day
On Thursday, April 25, 2019, RTD will join with other public transportation agencies nationwide in celebrating Get on Board Day, a day of raising awareness and support for public transportation among riders, non-riders, elected officials and stakeholders. On this day, RTD urges commuters to leave their cars at home and instead use public transit to get where they need to go.
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.
Sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association, Get on Board Day replaces Dump the Pump Day but continues the tradition of highlighting economic, environmental and health benefits of using public transportation. Participating in Get on Board Day is one way RTD and many other transportation agencies encourage commuters to try alternative modes of transportation, develop healthier routines, and cut the cost of commuting.
RTD will host a transit fair on Thursday, April 25 at Skyline Park from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. A transit fair is where representatives of RTD and other car-alternative organizations will spread the word about the many benefits of public transportation and how important it is to our community.
