DART, Other Regional Transit Agencies Launch #SoundTheHorn Campaign at 3 PM on April 16

Coalition of Transportation Agencies Join in Solidarity to Honor Transportation Workers Across the Region

Wilmington --

DART, together with Amtrak, NJ TRANSIT, SEPTA, and other regional public transit operators today launched a coordinated day of action to simultaneously sound their fleet of bus horns on April 16 to honor heroic transportation workers across the region. As a tribute to #HeroesMovingHeroes on the front lines of this public health crisis, all buses running in service will give two one-second horn blasts at 3 PM in solidarity with partner agencies. Heroic transportation workers continue to provide critical service for healthcare workers, first responders, childcare workers, grocery store employees and other heroes who are performing critically essential work during the Covid-19 pandemic.

John Sisson, Delaware Transit Corporation Chief Executive Officer, stated "We're proud to be a part of #SoundTheHorn and the coordinated effort to recognize the transportation workers in Delaware and across the country who are on the front lines of this crisis ensuring critical transportation trips can still be made."

The sounding of horns advances the #HeroesMovingHeroes campaign, which is dedicated to honoring public transportation employees who continue to go above and beyond the call of duty during this challenging time.
