TARTA is proud of its history of inclusion, its reputation for creating mobility solutions for northwest Ohio’s disabled and aging communities, and its belief that everyone deserves access to public transportation.
On Rosa Parks’ birthday, February 4, we join transit agencies and people from around the nation in celebrating Transit Equity Day. Signage will indicate a seat saved for Rosa Parks on every TARTA, TARPS and Call-A-Ride vehicle.
Events nationwide will focus on transit as a basic right and an essential public service for all people, regardless of income, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, or religion. Transit Equity Day also celebrates public transportation as an environmental solution and a key component in the fight against climate change.
TARTA’s mission statement of ‘Empowering People to Make Connections’ speaks directly to the spirit behind Transit Equity Day. An affordable, reliable public transportation system can serve as an economic driver, level the playing field and widen the number of applicants for job opportunities, and provide access for the entire community to doctors appointments, shopping, places of worship, entertainment, and everything else northwest Ohio has to offer.
Join us at TARTA in celebrating Transit Equity Day, as we recognize the role of public transit in creating a healthy, livable, and equitable future.
“To bring about change, you must not be afraid to take the first step. We will fail when we fail to try.”
