Get on Board Day
CityLink joined forces with transit agencies across the State of Illinois for #GetOnBoardIL on April 25, 2019 with a press conference/rally at the Downtown Peoria Transit Center. See the video below for an overview of the 2019 celebration.
Sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), Get on Board Day is a national awareness and advocacy day that is all about generating awareness of and increasing support for public transportation among riders and non-riders, elected officials, and stakeholders.
According to the 2018 APTA Transit Savings Report, individuals in a two-person household can save an average of more than $10,134 annually by downsizing to one car. However, public transportation doesn’t just help people save money, it also helps communities grow and prosper. For example, for every $1 invested in public transportation, $4 is returned in economic returns. Riding public transportation helps people and their communities!
