Black History Bus Wrap

Danville Transit 2024 Black History Bus

In observance of Black History Month, the Danville Transit System has unveiled a new bus wrap that celebrates local Black History. 

Members of the Transportation Advisory Committee selected 13 members of the community that have made a difference in Danville and have not been previously featured. The honorees fit the theme of "Honor the Past, Embrace the Future" and highlight the educational, entrepreneurial, and barrier-breaking figures. The vehicle with the Black History bus wrap will be placed on different fixed-route bus runs. This bus can be viewed at Danville’s Transfer Center, which is located at 515 Spring St., during scheduled service breaks at 10:00 a.m. and 3:15 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
