North Texas Transportation Agencies to Reward Users for Telling Their Story
DART, DCTA and The T Want to Hear Your Story
Working together to promote the benefits of public transportation, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), the Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) and the Fort Worth Transportation Authority (The T) want customers to share their stories on how they stopped talking out of their tailpipes and started using public transportation.
The North Texas transit agencies' Stop Talking Out of Your Tailpipe contest is designed to promote transit use by inviting customers to share their reasons for riding. It's also an opportunity for employees to thank their employers for helping provide their ride and encourage others to ask their employer to offer Employer Transit Benefits programs.
The contest is part of a national effort to promote transit ridership and encourage support for expanded transit choices. Winning entries will be shared with other transit agencies around the country to help educate commuters and policymakers on the benefits of transit: job creation, helping the environment, energy conservation and improved quality of life.
Visit www.StopTalkingOutOfYourTailpipe.com to submit an entry and review the contest details and rules.
