The Fort Worth Transportation Authority (The T) will kickoff
its year-long 25th Anniversary celebration on Saturday, Nov. 8, with
Dick Ruddell, president of The T, helping his staff serve coffee and snacks to
passengers, as well as distribute memorabilia from the agency’s history.
Since 1983, The T has expanded its service area from the
mid-sized city that Fort Worth was then to
multiple cities and government entities in Tarrant County – among the fastest growing U.S. counties with a population nearing 1.8 million.
The T’s year-long celebration will also include several
other important activities, including a luncheon hosted by Fort Worth Chamber of
Commerce, with T. Boone Pickens speaking; a six-month “Text-to-Win" contest with
participant prizes; and the announcement of the winner of a 25-year premium
transit pass randomly selected from the Text-to-Win participants.
