METRO BUSES, TRAINS WILL ROLL TO A STOP TO REMEMBER 9/11
AGENCY OBSERVES MOMENT OF SILENCE TO HONOR THE FALLEN AND THE HEROES
METRO will stand down with agencies and communities across the nation to mark the tenth anniversary of the national tragedy we know as 9/11.
When the clock strikes noon this Sunday, METRO services will come to a brief halt to honor the victims, their families and the heroes. METRO trains will stop at the nearest station or platform. Buses will pull to safe spots along their routes to allow operators and riders to observe a minute of silence. Announcements will be made onboard the vehicles and at all platforms calling riders to join METRO in marking this solemn occasion.
In addition to the traditional red, white and blue that mark METRO buses, all vehicles will have special commemorative decals: “9/11… A moment of remembrance. A time never forgotten.”
Service will resume immediately after.
Additionally, at 9:03 a.m., an Honor Guard Squad composed of METRO police officers will join law enforcement communities across the country and hit the pavement for the 9/11 Heroes Run – an annual charity commemorating the fallen, and the courageous men and women who protect and serve every day.
The race will be held at Ellington Airport (11602 Aerospace Dr) with pre-race activities starting at 8:30 a.m.
