DART wins grant to combat human trafficking
Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) has received a grant of $49,600 towards Human Trafficking Awareness from the Federal Transit Administration.
"As one of the first transit agencies to provide training to spot indicators of human trafficking and how to report it to every employee, DART knows the importance of these programs," said Thomas. "This funding provides us the opportunity to expand our public awareness efforts, provide training and education, and raise awareness among the traveling public along with the other members of our regional coalition of North Texas transportation entities."
