Metra announced today that it will recognize Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day on Thursday, April 27, by young people 18 and under who are accompanied by an adult to ride for free.
“Once again, Metra is happy to celebrate Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, and we hope to make it easier for our customers who are taking their kids to work by offering free rides for the children,” said Metra Executive Director/CEO Jim Derwinski. “This day provides a great opportunity for boys and girls to shadow and experience what their parents or guardians do at work. We know that for many of our riders, commuting with Metra is a part of that.”
The theme of this year’s Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day is “Working Better Together.” Children are encouraged to learn about becoming a part of a workplace team, accepting responsibilities, and working together.
