More Transit Agencies Join Horn Sounding Event

Additional commuter rail operators are joining in today’s “Sound The Horn” effort launched by Amtrak and New York-area transit agencies to honor transportation, health, and other essential workers who continue to work during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Operators of trains, buses and ferries will sound their horns today at 3 p.m. EDT to honor essential workers.

Among the public transit agencies joining the horn blowing event are Metra and the South Shore Line in Chicago, the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority in Philadelphia, and public transit agencies in Boston and Los Angeles.

Amtrak plans to hold a news media event as part of the event when the California Zephyr departs Chicago Union Station at 2 p.m. CDT.
