Residents Encouraged to Ride BCT on National Get on Board Day

BROWARD COUNTY, FL – National Get on Board Day is Thursday, April 25th and Broward County Transit (BCT) is joining public transit systems nationwide in participating by encouraging residents to leave their cars at home and “Get on Board” public transit.

Residents are also invited to stop by the Central Bus Terminal in downtown Fort Lauderdale to learn about the benefits of using public transportation, its impact on our community, the economy and the environment. BCT staff will be on hand to greet passengers and hand out great giveaways.

National Get on Board Day is sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) and is a day that encourages people to support public transportation. Every $1 invested in public transportation generates approximately $4 in economic returns, powering community growth and revitalization.

“Now that we have long-term sustainable funding in place, as a result of residents’ support of better transportation, BCT is gearing up to increase and improve transit services by 10% by the end of the year and by another 10% next year. These improvements include rolling out 147 new wi-fi equipped buses, extended service hours, and adding mobile payment options that will make it easier and more convenient for our customers to ride with us. Technological advances will also allow us to integrate ride hailing services and micro transit into our network and introduce environmentally friendly buses. We encourage motorists to leave their cars at home on April 25th and “Get on Board” BCT to enjoy the services we offer and to learn more about new and exciting improvements planned for BCT,” said Broward County Transportation Director Christopher Walton.
