Sound the Horn Event is June 18
North Texas public transportation agencies are joining their colleagues across the country in a coordinated day of action to salute frontline transit heroes.
At 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 18, bus and rail operators, train engineers and paratransit drivers from Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA), Trinity Metro and Trinity Railway Express (TRE) will sound their horns twice to honor our heroic transportation workers.
The act of solidarity is a symbolic way to pay tribute to those who continue providing service so that first responders and other essential workers can get to work during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Every day, frontline transportation workers provide essential services, making it possible for people to access health care, pharmacies, grocery stores and other critical needs.
